Hotels in Broughty Ferry
Set on the eastern side of Dundee in a small and traditional seaside suburb, Broughty Ferry hotels offer a picture perfect place to relax, enjoy a stroll along the beach or grab a pint at a local pub.
If you don't visit any other landmark in Scotland, the one place you cannot miss is Broughty Castle. The castle, built in 1496, sits at the mouth of the River Tay on a rocky promontory. It's seen a number of battles and sieges, and today the castle is home to a magnificent museum, covering several floors of displays that show off the life and times of Broughty Ferry, the environment, wildlife and the people. Claypotts Castle in Dundee is also worth checking out, dating from the 16th century and featuring unusually designed cap houses on top of circular towers. To get a feel for the area's strong maritime heritage, the HM Frigate Unicorn in Dundee is one of the oldest surviving ships in the world, dating from 1824.

Some of the traditional festivals in the area include Lomond Real Ale Festival, held near Loch Lomond towards the end of each May. This is one of the favourites for the locals as well as tourists. The event hosts a variety of independent Scottish breweries and a wide variety of music, including folk, rock and jazz.
