As a result of a conflict between Scotland and England between 1543 and 1550, known as the Rough Wooing, there is little remaining of Dundee's medieval city. However, one example of a structure that does survive from this era is the Wishart Arch (or East Port) in Cowgate. Dating back to 1544 it is the last surviving section of the city walls. Another example of medieval architecture that survives is Gardyne's Land on the High Street which dates back to around 1560.
Dundee lies in the central eastern Lowlands of Scotland on the north bank of the Firth of Tay which eventually flows into the North Sea. Dundee is Scotland's fourth largest city and is famous for building the RRS Discovery which was captain Scott's Atlantic exploration ship. The RRS Discovery can now be found berthed in Dundee's harbour.
The city has a thriving student population and is home to two universities: the University of Dundee and the University of Abertay Dundee which was founded as the Dundee Institute of Technology in 1988. The university is noted for its computing and creative technology courses, particularly in computer games technology, and is where the makers of Grand Theft Auto started out.
Located in north east Scotland, The Granite City, as Aberdeen is sometimes known as, is a hustling and bustling city but is also known for its wide range of parks, gardens and outdoor activities for those who crave city life coupled with the great outdoors. The city has a great beach, ideal for surfing and kit boarding as well as wildlife watching at Torry Battery. There is also BMX cycling facilities and a rock climbing wall. Duthie Park is Aberdeen's most famous park. Within the park are the David Welch Winter Gardens, which house many exotic plants including the largest collection of cacti in Britain. The park is an ideal setting for the perfect day out with the family, with activities from boating in the ponds to cricket on the lawns. Aberdeenshire has many Nature Reserves and one of the most popular is Glen Tanar Natural Nature Reserve located in a beautiful glen at the heart of Royal Deeside. At the reserve you might be lucky enough to glimpse a red squirrel or a Scottish crossbill might be above your head as you wander through ancient trees. You might also see the silvery flash of a salmon powering upstream from the banks of the river.
