It may resemble a spacecraft from fifties science fiction, but residents are asked not to be alarmed if they spot an egg-shaped object nestled in City Square on Monday.
Instead, visitors will be asked to pose for a selfie and share what they love most about their home country, at the latest tourism venture from the National Trust for Scotland.
Film stars like Dundee-born Brian Cox and tennis treasure Judy Murray are part of the project, which features a “futuristic” five-seat pod complete with tablet computer.
Those who sit inside will watch a film, featuring the aforementioned stars and others –including Gerard Butler, who will talk about what they love most about Scotland.
Then, audiences will be invited to pen their own love letters to the country, the best of which could be published on the National Trust’s website.
Suggestions have been given by Mark Bishop, director of customer and cause at the National Trust for Scotland, including adding some unknown gems from Angus like Barry Mill and the more well known ones, such as strawberries hand picked in the heart of Perthshire.
Mark said: “We’re excited to get the people of Dundee involved in our For the Love of Scotland campaign and hear what they love about Scotland.
“The trust protects some of Dundee and Angus’ most beautiful built and natural treasures so we hope to hear a few familiar names cropping up, like Barry Mill, and the House of Dun.
“Our members, donors, volunteers, visitors and staff help protect these special places for everyone to enjoy and our new campaign will help help us shout louder about the important role we play in caring for Scotland now and forever.
“We’re about coastlines and castles, art and architecture, wildlife and wilderness. We’re here to protect our natural and national treasures for everyone to enjoy. ”
Attendees do not need to book to use the pod, instead being served on a first come, first served basis.
The pod will then travel the length and breadth of the country, to find what its residents love most about it.
