A city with a long and fascinating history, Dundee has evolved over time into the home of Scotland’s technological and scientific discovery. The site of many battles during the Medieval Era, and the home of many famous engineering and industrial landmarks since, it is known today as the City of Discovery in honour of its long history of scientific activities. As one of Scotland's most popular principle cities to work, study, or raise a family, Dundee is a highly sought after city to live in.
The University of Dundee and The University of Abertay Dundee campuses are located in the centre of the city, whilst the student population is focussed in the West End, with a fair variety of student property also available in different parts of the city.
Dundee City has a wealth of traditional and modern buildings with many industrial buildings having been redeveloped in to stunning Dundee flats, new developments springing up around City Quay, some new housing estates on the fringes of the city and a fair amount of traditional honey or brown Scottish tenement buildings in districts, like Stobswell.
Dundee has excellent transport links, is accessible by road, air and rail and is within easy commuting distance of nearby Perth & Kinross, St. Andrews, Leven, Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline in Fife. The rest of Scotland is also within fairly easy reach, via car and the A90, or Scotland’s strong rail network. The airport for the city is located to west of the city, on the banks of the River Tay.
As well as the various districts in the city itself, Dundee’s former neighbour Broughty Ferry is now a major suburb of the city, offering some lovely affluent property within commuting distance of Dundee city centre.
