Dundee and Perth

From the City of Discovery to the Fair City, both of them with famous castles on the river Tay

AFTER NORTHUMBERLAND, I travelled north to Dundee, nicknamed the City of Discovery, a go-ahead industrial city where the first purpose-built British research vessel, the RRS Discovery, was built at the end of the Victorian era.

Dundee and environs. The Tay is roughly 1.5 km wide between Tayport and Broughty Castle. Map data ©2022 Google. North at top.
