Broughty Ferry

Broughty Ferry

An idyllic suburb of the metropolitan hub of Dundee, which lies a mere four miles away, featuring an excellent selection of good pubs and fine dining restaurants, this seaside town has plenty of historic attractions as well as areas of intense natural beauty.

Historically known as a fishing and whaling village, Broughty Ferry saw a resurgence in the Victorian era with wealthy jute barons building grand villas along the coastline and many coming to the area for holidays. Today the town is well known as a pleasant and romantic destination for travellers to visit, with easy access to Dundee and its many attractions, sightseeing opportunities and shopping. Golf fans are also in for a treat with the nearby Carnoustie Golf Course, a British Open Championship course only five miles away.

We love Broughty Ferry because...

  • Wonderful coastline
  • Wide range of restaurants
  • Areas of historical interest

In and around Broughty Ferry

Broughty Castle

A magnificent example of a 15th century coastal fort, this castle has a tumultuous history with many battles, sieges and subterfuges taking place among its walls. Today, the castle houses a museum, which pays tribute to the town, its inhabitants and their rich history. Guests can enjoy the many displays, as well as the ever-changing programme of events and activities. Ensure you check out the view from the castle, looking over Broughty Beach and the Tay estuary, which is truly spectacular.

RRS Discovery

One of the most famous ships in all of Scotland, the RRS Discovery took the great Captain Scott and his brave crew on one of the most daunting and heroic journeys of exploration ever undertaken. In 1901, captain and crew set off for the Antarctic for research purposes, all in all they spent a gruelling two years crushing ice in the Antarctic, even through the long winters! Visitors can now experience what life was like for the sailors on the ship and learn through interactive exhibitions, as well as relics and artefacts from the crew.

Broughty Ferry Beach

This wide-open, sandy beach is the ideal location for a long walk, or a day relaxing on the sand. The nearby Broughty Castle provides an awe-inspiring backdrop, along with the Tay Estuary and rolling sand dunes. The area has been designated a nature conservation site, meaning that wildlife watchers will be delighted in the abundance of flora and fauna in this area, from seals, seabirds, porpoise and many more that animals frequent the beach on a regular basis.
