Situated on the Tay estuary, Dundee is Scotland’s sunniest city and is closer to the countryside than any other Scottish city. We will take time to explore the area and take in the Heritage and Culture of this part of Scotland.

Set in its own stunning grounds, the 4-star DoubleTree by Hilton Dundee features an indoor swimming pool, a gym and a conservatory-style restaurant. Free WiFi throughout.

This Scottish mansion house has elegant, spacious rooms, each with black-out curtains, a power shower and a flat-screen satellite TV.

The property’s leisure facilities include a pool and fitness centre.

The Garden Room Restaurant overlooks the gardens and offers fine cuisine

made from local seasonal produce.

Dundee town centre is within a 10-minute drive, on the outskirts of Dundee, surrounded by beautiful countryside and just off the A90.
