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.
The main shopping area is in the town centre and offers consumers a variety of shops and department stores.
Located in Central Scotland, the city of Stirling is the county town of Stirlingshire. The city is sometimes referred to as "The Gateway to the Highlands" which has led to it having a significant position in Scotland's history. Major battles for Scottish independence took place in and around Stirling.
A major new regeneration project is underway on the site of the former port area and former Ministry of Defence site, adjacent to Stirling Railway Station. Known as Forthside, it has the aim of developing a new waterfront district linked to the railway station via a new pedestrian bridge. The development comprises retail, residential and commercial elements, including a conference centre, hotel and Vue multiplex cinema, that will ultimately expand the city centre area, linking it to the River Forth, which has been cut off from the city centre area since the construction of a nearby road in the 1960's.
In summer there is a sightseeing bus which is a cheap way to get to the sights, as you can "hop on and off" at any time. There are regular coach services to Stirling from all over Scotland run mainly by Scottish Citylink, with regular departures from Glasgow (Buchanan Bus Station) and Edinburgh (St Andrew's Bus Station) calling en-route to either Inverness or Aberdeen.
