We went to Dundee by rail over the Forth Rail Bridge and the Tay Bridge. My late Grandfather, Alexander Green, was born here, but I had never been to visit. We would have a walk around for four hours and see the sights.

Dundee proved to be an interesting place, but more time is needed to explore it properly. I was glad to have made the journey.
