Dundee travel pictures

Sightseeing in Dundee

Dundee is a small city on the east coast of Scotland and has around 150.000 inhabitants. It has a nice city center which is low in traffic and parts are fully pedestrianized. The main sights are  the McManus galleries which are located on a square surrounded by many old buildings and give a good impression of this historical city. The McManus galleries are an architectural masterpiece of its own. The main religious sights include the St. Paul's cathedral, St. Andrew's church and the centrally located City churches.

Some of the other sights within the city center include Caird hall with in front a large square and the Seagate gallery. Just outside the city center lies the old shop R.R.S. discovery and its visitor center Discovery point. What makes Dundee an attractive city is the city center which from an historical point of view is very intact. Combine this with low traffic and the city presents itself as a peaceful place to go for a stroll, some sightseeing or do some shopping. Dundee is a compact city and best explored on foot. In one day it is easy to see everything including a visit to a museum and still have some spare time left to enjoy a meal in one of the local pubs or restaurants.

Dundee is easy to get to as it is connected by train to Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are both over one hour away. For those who are traveling around Scotland it could perhaps be a real option to use Dundee as a base to travel from as AberdeenSt. Andrews and Perth are directly connected by bus or train and can be comfortably visited as a day trip.
