Tour Scotland Video Cloudy Drive From Perth To Victoria Docks In Dundee

Tour Scotland video of a cloudy drive East on the A90 road all the way from Perth, Perthshire, on ancestry visit to Victoria Docks in Dundee, Scotland. Construction of Victoria dock was begun in 1833 by the Dundee Harbour engineer, James Leslie, born 1801, died 1889, to a design by Thomas Telford, born 1757, died 1834. However, it was not completed until 1875. Occupying 10.7 acres, this was one of the largest enclosed docks in Scotland. Today, Victoria Dock is used as a marina, part of the City Quay redevelopment. Permanently anchored in the dock are HM Frigate Unicorn, the oldest British built ship afloat anywhere in the world, and the former North Carr lightship.
