Explore Dundee

Dundee is Scotland's fourth-largest city and the 51st-most-populous built-up area in the United Kingdom. The mid-year population estimate for 2016 was 148,270, giving Dundee a population density of 2,478/km2 or 6,420/sq mi, the second-highest in Scotland. It lies within the eastern central Lowlands on the north bank of the Firth of Tay, which feeds into the North Sea. Under the name of Dundee City, it forms one of the 32 council areas used for local government in Scotland. Historically part of Angus, the city developed into a burgh in the late 12th century and established itself as an important east coast trading port. Rapid expansion was brought on by the Industrial Revolution, particularly in the 19th century when Dundee was the centre of the global jute industry. This, along with its other major industries gave Dundee its epithet as the city of "jute, jam and journalism".

Tay Bridge

The Tay Bridge carries the mainline railway across the Firth of Tay in Scotland, serving rail traffic between the city of Dundee and the suburb of Wormit in Fife. Its span is 2.75 miles. The present structure is the second bridge to occupy the site. As early as 1854, there had been plans for a Tay crossing, which was envisioned to replace an early train-ferry service which had been established in the vicinity. The first Tay Bridge, which had been opened during 1878, was a single-track lattice design, which possessed several favourable qualities, including its relative lightness and low cost. On 28 December 1879, tragedy stuck when this bridge suddenly collapsed amid high winds; the incident has become known as one of the greatest bridge-related engineering disasters to have ever occurred. An enquiry into the disaster determined that the bridge's design had not made sufficient accommodation to handle high winds.
