Dundee is the fourth largest city in Scotland and is located within the eastern central Lowlands on the north bank of the Firth or Tay which leads into the North Sea. The city grew rapidly in the 19th century due to the jute industry which gave the city its epithet as the city of "jute, jam and journalism".
Dundee is famous for building the RRS Discovery, Robert Falcon Scott's Atlantic exploration vessel which is now berthed in the city's harbour. The city has reinvented itself over recent decades and is now home to many Biomedical and technological industries and now accounts for 10% of the United Kingdom's digital entertainment industry. The city is also known for the Dandy, the Beano, Desperate Dan and Oor Wullie comic books.
Visitors wishing to orient themselves should consider taking a walk (or drive) up the Law, the plug of an extinct volcano, which offers a 360-degree uninterrupted view of Dundee, the Tay estuary and the Tay Bridge, famously replacing the bridge demolished after the disaster of 1879, and the Tay Road Bridge.
