Dundee

Dundee is about 30 minutes drive from Blairgowrie. It is a city with a rich industrial and commercial history and is well-worth a visit. It has a vibrancy which comes from being home to Dundee and Abertay Universities which have proud records in academic, technology and arts subjects. Dundee Science Centre hosts regular exhibitions which engage and entertain all ages. At the Discovery Centre you can learn about Captain Scott’s visit to Antarctica and visit RRS Discovery, who has now returned to the city of her birth.

You can also visit Dundee’s Verdant Works and find out more about the story of spinning and weaving jute which helped Dundee become the city it is today.

Dundee will become home to the new Victoria & Albert Museum in 2017.
