Tour Scotland Video Drive From St Andrews To Dundee
Tour Scotland video of a drive from St Andrews, Fife, through Guardbridge, Leuchars and St Michaels, and over the Tay Road Bridge on ancestry visit to Dundee, Scotland. The bridge was designed by William Fairhurst and construction began in March 1963 with the infilling of West Graving Dock, King William Dock and Earl Grey docks in Dundee. The construction was undertaken by Duncan Logan Construction Ltd. Controversially, construction required the demolition of Dundee's Royal Arch where Queen Victoria had entered the city on a royal visit. Rubble from the Victoria arch was used as foundations for the on-ramp. The completed bridge was officially opened by the Queen Mother on 18 August 1966.
