Meet in front of Discovery - a stroll through Dundee's turbulent history. Have fun being led by your friendly & informative Guide. *Pease see website re Howff Graveyard and Old Broughty Ferry tours (meeting points and information are very different.)

We will take you from as far back as the Volcanic formation of the Dundee Law, then lead you safely through some of the wars, disasters and happier events which have affected our city. You will encounter dreadful rogues , awful (but much loved) poets and some true heroes .

Captain Scott's RRS Discovery, was launched here in Dundee in 1901. The ship's story, from the voyage with Scott to Antarctica , to its homecoming and location at Discovery Point, is one of the main themes of the tour .Your Guide has been a Volunteer onboard RRS Discovery for several years. He often gets asked if this is the original ship-it most certainly is!

The tour, which is all on the level, is around 3/4 of a mile (1208 metres) in distance. Tours last around an hour and 15 minutes.

Tours will go ahead irrespective of the weather. Please do take care to dress accordingly - we are situated at the Tay estuary , leading to the North Sea. Dundee is , however, the sunniest city in Scotland . It will be fun!

Please note that your tour ticket price does not entitle you to entry to any of the attractions which we will view or discuss. We would however be glad to recommend that you do try to visit or investigate them for yourselves. Tour tickets are for sale online only .Sorry no refunds after ticket purchase.

PLEASE NOTE that if guests are interested in the Broughty Ferry tours listed on website ,THESE are over cobbles, uneven pavements/ kerbs and narrow lanes. As a result ,unlike the Discovery Point tours, these are not easily accessible due to the nature of the terrain, we regret .
