Meet celebrated Scottish poet William Topaz McGonagall as you enjoy an easy stroll along Dundee's magnificent waterfront and what remains of its harbour area. Visit the two famous Tay Bridges, the RRS Discovery (the ship that took Scott to the Antartic), HM Frigate Unicorn (the oldest British-built ship still afloat) and the North Carr Lightship.

Stroll along McGonagall's Walk as you view the Tay Rail Bridge. Numerous information panels along the route give details of historical events on the Tay and introduce you to a sample of poems by William McGonagall. 

On a sunny day the the views are amazing; on a stormy day the route is very exposed to winds blowing in from the river.
