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.

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.
