Dundee Mini Guide
Dundee is the fourth largest city in Scotland and has an interesting history being more than 800 years old. Located on the east coast of Scotland and built on the banks of the River Tay, the area where the city of Dundee now stands has in fact been continually occupied since the Mesolithic area.
It grew in strength as a port town on the back of its wool trade, but then the main trade transferred to jute after it became easier to produce linen instead of wool. Today about 150,000 people live in Dundee and a great number of them are students who attend the University of Dundee.
Dundee has gained a reputation for being a centre for journalism and also a production hub for jam. It is thought that marmalade was first made in Dundee while the DC comics and the Dandy and Beano children’s publications come from Dundee. When you are in Dundee, a good starting point for a tour of the city is at the RSS Discovery warship in the dockyard as this is also in Discovery Quay where the tourist information office is located.
