How to get there
Dundee in Scotland
The city is well worth a visit-famously the home of “jam, jute and journalism”. It is really marmalade, not jam, which Dundee is linked with, after Janet Keiller is said to created British marmalade from an import of Seville oranges. There were a number of jute works in the local area but numbers have decreased due to lack of demand.
It’s also famous for DC Thompson which created the Beano and Dandy comics as well as the character “Oor Willie”. Although people know about the “old course” at St Andrews there are in actuality eleven courses to explore and maybe play on, all owned by the National Trust.
The airport is connected with the rest of Scotland (central Glasgow and Edinburgh city center) by trains leaving from Dundee Railway Station, which is the closest train station. The rail station lies on the East Coast line to Edinburgh and is also on the cross-country line serving the city of Glasgow.
National Express Dundee bus direct connects the airport with the city centre, Broughty Ferry and Ninewells Hospital. Direct buses to many other major destinations are available from the railway station.
DND lies on the main A85 Riverside Drive, which links the city centre to the Kingsway and the A90.
