About this Event

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 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`ll 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 . No refunds will be made after purchase, sorry.

*Our meeting point is very close to Dundee Railway Station, where there is also one of the main Taxi Ranks.

The sacking of Dundee by General Monck, in 1651.

As brave as they come ! Fighting Sea- Dog BAMSE, with one of his greatest admirers. Hear the story of the St Bernard who won the Animal VC for Gallantry,in WW2.
