Tour Scotland Video April Drive Into The City Of Dundee Tayside
Tour Scotland video of an April drive along Riverside Drive into the city of Dundee, Scotland. Dundee's history is closely interlinked with its location on the north shore of the Firth of Tay. The City gained its charter in 1191 as one of King David 1's new towns created to encourage trade and civilise the Scottish countryside. The site was strategically positioned, controlling the entry into the heart of Scotland. In the 20th Century, the most significant factor which determined Dundee's relationship with the Waterfront was the siting on the northern landfall of the Tay Road Bridge. The redevelopment of Dundee's waterfront is building on a succession of developments dating back as far as 1300 which have sought to make use of the waterfront. In doing so the current development is writing a new chapter in the history of Dundee. Construction work has started at the V&A Museum of Design with the first elements of the cofferdam extending out into the River Tay.
