City Guide



Introduction to Dundee

The city of Dundee is located in the east of Scotland in the Central Lowlands, on the coast of the North Sea. The area known as The Law can be found in the centre of the city and is home to an extinct volcano with a peak of around 570 feet high. The city is also home to no fewer than five castles! In 2017 the V&A Museum of Design Dundee will open and it will be the first design museum to be built in the UK outside London.

Dundee has a large community of students due to its two universities – the University of Dundee and Abertay University.
