Dundee was once noted for jam, jute and journalists. It remains the marmalade capital of the world and still produces more than its share of newspaper writers. Dundee's old centre was destroyed during World War II. The city's major attraction is the Maritime and Whaling Museum and the ship Discovery, which was used on the first Antarctic expedition of Capt. Robert Scott.
To the north of Dundee, however, you can see Macbeth's Glamis Castle (more recently the birthplace and childhood home of the Queen Mother). Also in that area are Brechin Round Tower (built more than 1,000 years ago by Irish monks) and the unique and lovely gardens of Edzell Castle. To the northeast lie the beautiful ruins of Arbroath Abbey and the spectacular remains of Dunnottar Castle. In Broughty Ferry, a quaint village to the east of Dundee, the architects of Claypotts Castle experimented with many styles and forms, creating a bizarrely hybrid structure that is awesome in the true sense of the word. To the south visit St Andrews, one of the most historic towns of Scotland.
