Broughty Ferry is the most known and the largest suburb of Dundee, existing almost as a separate town to the west of the city. It is bordered to the west by Monifieth, by countryside to the north, and West Ferry and Craigiebank to the east.
A pleasant suburb that is more affluent than most of Dundee, Broughty Ferry is a primarily residential area and as such has a variety of different property available to rent. Whilst it has many of its own amenities, attractions and transport links, those looking for a home that is proximite to the centre of Dundee might be better placed looking in areas like Hilltown.
Broughty Ferry, like many such independent outer suburbs of British cities, was formerly an independent settlement in its own right, but nowadays is firmly a suburb of the City of Discovery. It has three primary schools which feed into the nearby secondary school, Grove Academy.
A beachfront park on the river Tay offers recreational facilities for residents including the opportunity to partake in a round of crazy golf and go-karting. Football pitches, a rugby pitch and an American football pitch are available at Dawson Park. Another organisation you can join in Broughty Ferry is the Grove Blackwatch, an army cadet group which has a history dating back over 150 years, and is joined by many of Dundee’s residents.
