A Museums & Galleries in Dundee
McManus Galleries and Museum is a splendid Gothic Revival-style building housing Dundee\'s main collection. The museum was established in part of the Albert Institute, which was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott - regarded at the time as the leading architect in the Gothic style - and opened in 1867 in commemoration of Queen Victoria\'s beloved husband Albert. A further addition in 1887, during Queen Victoria\'s Golden Jubilee year, expanded the complex and provided further art galleries and exhibition space. Typical of many Victorian institutions established during this period, its purpose was to make more widely available artefacts from the local area and around the world for public education.

The Private House Stay's Guide
Scotland's fourth largest city sits on two prominent hills, Balgay and the Law, overlooking the River Tay. There is a fantastic freshness to the air in Dundee that has transformed itself into a city with impressive high-tech industries that adds to the high quality houses that were built out along the Tay towards Broughty Ferry when the city was built on wealth that was earned from the Jute trade. One of Dundee's big attractions is Captain Scott's ship, the Discovery. Dundee also has a thriving arts scene and plenty of good shops, bars and restaurants.
