Spotlight on: Dundee
Scotland’s ‘third city’ sits on the River Tay, with the landmark Tay Rail Bridge as a backdrop. Few cities in Britain can match Dundee’s setting, arguably seen at its best from across the river in Fife. After shrugging off its post-industrial history, Dundee has transformed into a modern, vibrant place with much to occupy visitors and excellent amenities for the locals. As you would expect from a university town, Dundee has a thriving arts scene (don’t miss a trip to the DCA or Dundee Rep), and good bars and restaurants. It is now famous for embracing hi-tech industry and was the original home of Rockstar, the company responsible for the Grand Theft Auto series of computer games.
