Whether your cruise ship arrives for a one-day stop or you have a half day to be spent in Dundee, don’t miss the opportunity to discover the UNESCO City of Design that is also rich in history. You can learn about the history of transport, have an amazing view at the city from Dundee’s extinct volcano, and visit Broughty Ferry’s attractive shoreline and Castle. Extend your journey to the surrounding areas and discover Glamis with a thousand years of history, or the spectacular ruins of St Andrews Cathedral. Our bespoke port tour from Dundee Harbour will maximise your time to experience the essence of Scotland’s Tay Country. We guarantee your day will begin in style as we collect you from the dockside where your cruise ship stops.

From rich design heritage to historic castles and ruins, the area of Dundee is designed to surprise its visitors. The only thing you need to know is where to start!  With the help of our expert guide, you can create a totally bespoke tour tailored to your individual needs. This well-connected region has a lot to offer.

For your maximum comfort, our experienced tour guide, Ian, will meet you on your arrival to The Port of Dundee. Combining his passion for Scotland with his profession as a teacher, you will be provided with local knowledge and insights to help you soak up the atmosphere of this ever-developing region, in a traditional Scottish style.

As an instant experience, we can take a short walk in the riverside area, where the royal research ship, the RRS Discovery docks. This magnificent, world-famous vessel was launched in 1901, travelled through the Arctic pack ice, and is still revealing its secrets. [1]

The brand-new V&A Dundee, Scotland’s first design museum is also in the neighbourhood. Its impressive building and waterfront view is definitely worth a visit and a great spot to take some photographs.

But your real Dundee experience will only start afterwards. Our trip will take you to Tay Railway Bridge explaining how the building has brought increased travel and trade opportunities to the east coast of Scotland, and how a tragedy happened due to a construction failure.

Your tour will lead you up to an extinct volcano, that provides, not just scenic views over Dundee, Angus, Fife and Perthshire, but a hidden history too! A trip to Dundee is not complete without discovering the city as well as the splendid beach and castle of Broughty Ferry.

Time permitting, you will have the option to visit Glamis Castle to witness more than 1000 years of history or wander along the picturesque beach of St Andrews and its beautiful castle ruins. But the Arbroath smokie fish could be a delicious alternative to fill your belly after an exciting day out in Dundee. Only your time sets the limits!

We are here to help you maximise your cruise ship stop in Dundee. Our guided tour can be tailored to have you back in ample time before your departure.
