Flat-seekers from Dundee looking for flats away from the busy centre, or anybody moving for work or other reasons to Dundee, should make hunting for flats in Broughty Ferry one of their first choices. This pleasant suburb is more amenable than some of Dundee's harder-edged districts such as the Hilltown, but still has enviable proximity to the centre, and is well-served by public transport links, meaning that renting a flat in Broughty Ferry will give you all of the advantages of Dundee's centre, with few of its drawbacks.
Broughty Ferry, like many such independent outer subrbs of British cities, was formerly an independent settlement in its own right, but nowadays is firmly a suburb of the City of Discovery. Broughty Ferry itself 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 of crazy gold and go-karting. Football pitches, a rugby pitch and an American football pitch are available at Dawson Park. Another organisation of great pride to residents of Broughty Ferry is Grove Blackwatch, an army cadet group which has a history dating back over 150 years.
