Meet in Meadowside entry (not Barrack Street ) in Dundee city centre. Close to McManus Museum. A friendly, guided walk through hundreds of years of Dundee History. The fascinating story of the city and its citizens is written on the stones.

The tour is over uneven surfaces and different terrains. It is around 3/4 of a mile (1208 metres) in distance and lasts for around an hour and 15 minutes.

Tours will go ahead irrespective of the weather. Please do take care to dress accordingly . You must have on stout waterproof footwear for your own comfort and safety .We will be walking on fairly good cobbled paths much of the time, but will be on grass or earth at gravesides, at other times. We are situated at the Tay estuary , leading to the North Sea and the weather is changeable. Dundee is , however, the sunniest city in Scotland . It will be fun!

Dundee Waterfront Walks

Meet in front of RRS Discovery for Dundee History tour, at Howff Graveyard (Central Dundee) for the Howff Graveyard Tour and at the foot of the Broughty Castle drawbridge for the Old Broughty Ferry tour including the little known Fisher graveyard. We the will take you from as far back as the Volcanic formation of 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 . The history is often sad, sometimes amusing , but always fascinating!
