Dundee is known for not only its friendly welcome but an attractive city centre that is small in area but large in charm. Its location on the banks of the River Tay has been described by Stephen Fry as “…more extraordinary than any other city in the UK”.
With museums, theatres, independent shopping, bars, and restaurants, Dundee offers all the city buzz, but in a beautifully-compact package. Angus is Scotland’s birthplace with many historic sites, from Arbroath Abbey where the first Declaration of Arbroath was signed to the birthplace of Peter Pan creator JM Barrie in the little red town of Kirriemuir. Lace up your walking boots, take to the hills in the Angus glens or bring a picnic and enjoy the tranquility of Lunan Bay near Montrose.
At the heart of Perthshire is the city of Perth, with great shopping and cultural attractions. The area is known as Big Tree Country, with unbeatable forest walks. Outdoor activities draw many people here – walkers looking for gentle strolls to thrillseekers looking for the white-water challenges of the Tay.
