Dundee is in North East Scotland and is Scotland's 4th largest city. The city is just over 800 years old.

It is situated beside Scotland's longest river, the River Tay, and is home to RRS Discovery - the ship built in 1901 for Captain Scott who travelled to the Antarctic. Dundee has an excellent offering of attractions including the McManus Art Gallery & Museum, Science Centre, Frigate Unicorn and Transport Museum.

A £1 billion master plan to regenerate and to reconnect the Waterfront to the city centre which started in 2001 is expected to be completed within a 30-year period, with the Dundee Victoria & Albert Museum opening by 2018 at a cost of £80 million.
