Dundee in Angus is the fourth largest city in Scotland. It's perhaps not best known for its tourist attractions and struggles somewhat in the shadow of the better known Scottish cities Edinburgh and Glasgow, but Dundee has much to offer world travellers and those looking for places to visit during the UK school holidays.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure that these school holidays are accurate, there are occasions when circumstances beyond our control may result in changes.

No Scottish holiday in Dundee would be complete without buying and sampling some world famous Dundee cake. Dundee cake was first made in the city some time in the 19th century.
It was made as a variation on the simple fruit cake, already widely produced and eaten across the UK. It was a small food manufacturer in Dundee who came up with this slightly different recipe and named it Dundee cake.
The Dundee cake is a lighter cake, using less fruit than traditional fruit cakes. The top of the Dundee cake is decorated with almonds, which is probably the main feature of a Dundee cake and the one that makes it easily recognisable.
Dundee has a revitalised city centre and retail scene, a thriving Dundee Contemporary Arts centre, an impressive Ice Arena and a huge choice of leisure options.
