Dundee - where we are

Dundee is at the heart of Scotland’s road and rail network and puts spectacular scenery, skiing, championship golf, mountain climbing, and sailing within easy reach.

The major cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow are a short trip away. Scotland’s four main international airports all operate both national airlines such as British Airways, and low cost airlines. This makes it easy to get to all the major centres of the UK and Europe.
