So what wee things would you like to do?

- Take an Outlander tour, or discover other filming locations and inspirations on a Mary Queen of Scots tour or a Harry Potter tour;
- Get some sea air – explore beautiful beaches, take a boat trip to see the local wildlife, discover the traditional fishing harbours or walk out to a tidal island;
- Sample our local food produce – whether it be the local seafood, artisan bakery, wild boar breeders or strawberry farms, you won’t be disappointed;
- Art and culture – such as a visit to the newly opened V&A Dundee;
- Fancy a wee tipple – obviously we’re renowned for our Scotch whisky, however both gin and craft beer are both huge too, so we could join a Scottish whisky distillery tour or Scottish gin distillery tour or Scottish Brewery tour and obviously have a wee tasting too!
