Why Move to Dundee?
Located on the north bank of the river Tay, said to be one of the most stunning rivers in Scotland, Dundee is Scotland’s fourth largest city. It lies around 62 miles from Edinburgh and 81 miles from Glasgow. The city was once a major whaling port and its history can be traced back over 800 years.
Today the city has seen much change, its economy is no longer dependant on its once thriving fishing and jute industries.
What was a post-industrial city now has multiple indicators of inward investment, including a growing technology sector along with an established niche in the creative digital entertainment industry in video game production.
Dundee is a compact city, making it easy to travel around by foot, although excellent public transport is available too. Its Cultural Quarter lies to the west of the city centre, where the university and many pubs, bars and cafes, as well as the renowned Rep Theatre, are all located.
Finding something to do with your spare time is no issue. Dundee’s idyllic location offers activities such as water skiing on the river or cycling along the Green Cycleway at weekends. The city’s proximity to St Andrew’s Golf Club, one of the oldest golf clubs in the world, is also a major draw for golf fanatics.
The recently completed V&A Museum development, a major £1bn project, has meant that there is even more to occupy your down time.
Not only is Dundee a great place to visit, calling it home means you have access to an affordable housing market, more reasonably priced than other Scottish cities, very convenient transport links and so much to do with regard to leisure pursuits.
