Discover Dundee

Dundee, Scotland’s new capital of cool, boasts a revitalised waterfront, the centrepiece of which is the striking building of the newly opened V&A Museum. Our new packaged itinerary includes visits to historic Discovery Point, the popular city of St Andrews and beautiful Glamis Castle and we also enjoy a scenic train journey along the spectacular coast to Montrose.
