16-17 September 2017

Take a guided tour around the allotments! Our aim is to promote the growing of fruit and vegetables and to promote a community spirit amongst members. Refreshments provided and an opportunity to purchase produce at the end of the tour. Our allotment site has been in existence since the 1940's when the need arose to grow your own for the war effort. Originally farmland, the allotments have evolved over the years to the present day where we now have 71 plots of assorted size in use. The Association manages the site and it is leased from Dundee City Council; our purpose is to promote the growing of fruit and vegetables, to manage the site to promote a community spirit amongst members and to protect and enhance the environment.

Dudhope Castle

16 September 2017

One of Dundee's oldest and best loved buildings dating from the late 16th century. It was the home of the Scrimgeour family, Constables of Dundee and Hereditary Standard Bearers of Scotland. In the 1680s it was home to John Graham of Claverhouse, Viscount of Dundee, known to history as both "Bonnie Dundee" and "Bluidy Clavers". The historic building is now a fully operational office for Dundee City Council Services. As a result only the ground floor will be opened on Doors Open Days. This includes the Main Hall and other ground floor rooms. Aspects of the history of the building will be illustrated by displays. In the grounds of the castle stands a 1744 Well Head (removed from the Overgate). Gardens are all fully open.
