Of all the many sites which make a facet of Dundee's industrial history, Lochee is one of the most significant. Once a separate town, the area has long since been absorbed the the expanding 'City of Discovery'. Dundee was of course in former times best known for Jute production, and Lochee was home to Camperdown Works, the largest jute production site in the entire world. Anybody looking for flats in Lochee can therefore be assured that they are moving to a place at the absolute centre of Dundee's history. Nowadays, Lochee may also be recognised as the home of both indie rock band The View and controversial Respect politician George Galloway (although neither of those should be held against it)
Dundee itself is one of Scotland's major cities, once known primarily as a producer of jute, now home to two major universities and a major Waterfront regeneration plan. The RRS Discovery, Captain Scott's Antarctic exploration ship, is permanently moored in the city, giving it its nickname. A £45m museum, the Victoria and Albert, is shortly to open in Dundee city centre, a sign of the regeneration which is occuring in this busy little city.
