A new visitor route exploring Dundee’s connections to the sea has been launched as the city emerges from lockdown.
The two-kilometre Maritime Trail includes celebrated historic vessels such as RRS Discovery and HMS Unicorn, and some lesser-known architectural and artistic gems.
Dundee City Council’s city development convener Alan Ross said it was a fantastic way to explore the waterfront area.
“It allows us to enjoy the transformed, modern waterfront and at the same time celebrates an important part of our city’s heritage,” he said.
“Many of us have been connecting with outdoor spaces and the history of our communities in recent weeks, and this is another enjoyable way to do that.”
Created as a collaboration between Dundee City Council, Leisure & Culture Dundee and community partners, the project will develop to include contributions from the public.
Bill Newcombe, chairman of Dundee City Centre and Harbour Community Council, said: “The harbour area has a rich and important maritime history. The trail will help to highlight this hidden history, and we hope it attracts local people and, in the longer term, tourists to visit the area.”
