Places to visit in Dundee

Dundee has a lot of spots for exploring landscape photography. I am sure as soon as you come to Dundee, you will hear a lot about Dundee Law – the highest point in the city. It is a special place for people who enjoy a steep run with a magnificent view that evolves with each season and with different lightings.

This place is a remnant of a volcanic sill with a larger war memorial. It dates to the Iron Age with association to the Pictish settlements. In addition to that, Roman pottery has also been found in this area – linking it to the first century.

The second most discussed place in Dundee is the V & A museum. It is the first design museum in Scotland aptly placed near the waterfront with a beautiful view of the Tay River. It is an easy visit with only a 5 min walk from the city center. There is a lovely coffee shop near the museum – perfect for the frequent cold weather!

Lastly, a must-visit for any astronomy lovers is the Mills Observatory! The telescope is a 400nm reflector, with a planetarium and a display area. It is the first public observatory built in the UK styled with beautiful sandstones. It is a place that will take you back in time with its built, while at the same time the shows they offer take you far into the future of exploration. Their website provides good insights into stargazing and also informs you about the upcoming events!

And if would like to add a little zest to these visits, you might want to explore Treasure Trails. They offer a treasure hunt walking trail around Dundee at your own time and pace with fun clues if you get stuck! (
