Scotland’s Tay Country is a destination by design, incorporating local authority areas of Angus, Fife, Perthshire and the city of Dundee. Located on the east coast of Scotland, Tay Country has excellent road links and is 1 hour north of Edinburgh, 90 minutes from Glasgow and 80 minutes south of Aberdeen. Dundee Airport connects with London & Belfast, with plenty of rail connections including the option to arrive from the South overnight via the Caledonia Sleeper service. All these connections make it ideal for multi-destination itineraries, easily accessible from Scotland’s other cities and on route either north or south.
Tay Country has multiple, diverse Travel Trade ready destinations and we offer support services to the Travel Trade interested in the region. Our four themed itineraries will provide inspiration and show your clients the multitude of experiences on offer. In addition we encourage you and your clients to design a bespoke itinerary to reflect their personal needs.
Your visitors will be delighted at the rich offering of experiences on offer. At the mouth of the River Tay lies the city of Dundee. Its waterfront has undergone a £1billion redevelopment and the V&A Dundee is at the centre of this renewal. V&A Dundee, Scotland’s first design museum, is a world class design museum. Housing classic Scottish design and ever changing exhibitions from around the country, the building itself is a design masterpiece, the work of world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma, who was responsible for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic stadium.
As the Dundee regeneration offers a glimpse of the city’s place in the modern world, around the region there are reminders of Scotland’s rich heritage. From the birthplace of golf in St Andrew’s to the birthplace of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother at Glamis Castle; from Scone Palace and its coronation stone to Falkland Palace, Mary Queen of Scot’s country residence. Tay Country offers the opportunity to see the rich tapestry that is Scotland’s cultural heritage, past and present, all set against a majestic landscape.
