The next destination for the Photographic Society of the University of Edinburgh was this day trip to Dundee, Scotland’s 4th largest city. The main point of interest was the brand new (then) V&A Museum in Dundee and the Tay (Rail) Bridge. We didn’t follow any nature trail as we did during our previous day trips (see A day trip to Peebles for an example). Nevertheless, you can find the route we followed below.
There are direct trains from Edinburgh to Dundee every half an hour. You can get the train either from Edinburgh Waverly or Haymarket stations. The train journey should last between 1 hour and 1 hour and a half (depending on the stops of the train). Once you reach Dundee station, the city centre and the main sights are only a few steps away.
Things to do
Dundee has many museums to visit. One of the highlights is the relatively new V&A (Victoria and Albert) Museum in Dundee, Scotland’s first design museum, the little brother of the V&A Museum in London. Then, there is the RSS Discovery, Dundee Science Centre, Dundee Contemporary Arts and the McManus Dundee’s Art Gallery & Museum. Of course, you should not leave Dundee without having a look at the Tay Rail Bridge, which you most probably would have crossed on your way there. Lastly, pass by Magdalen Green on your way back to the city centre.
