Built in 1496, Broughty Castle has survived countless sieges and battles.

Today it houses fascinating displays on the life and times of Broughty Ferry, its people, the environment and the wildlife that live close by.

The Orchar Gallery located within the Castle, features a selection of around 30 paintings from the amazing Orchar Collection - one of the most important collections of Scottish Victorian art in the country, once owned by James Guthrie Orchar, (1825-1898), a prominent Dundee businessman and a former Lord Provost of Broughty Ferry.

Minutes from the Broughty Ferry beach and esplanade, the museum has magnificent views over the River Tay.

Broughty Ferry Beach & Esplande

Broughty Ferry's fine seafront esplanade and sweeping sands provide the perfect place for a relaxing stroll or a quiet picnic.

One of 59 Scottish beaches to be given the Seaside Award status in 2013, a prize awarded by the Keep Scotland Beautiful charity, rewards the quality of litter management, safety procedures and water quality on beaches all around Scotland.

Claypotts Castle

Claypotts Castle was built by John Strachan between 1569 and 1588, and later owned by ‘Bonnie Dundee', John Graham of Claverhouse. Standing at the northeastern edge of Dundee, the Castle was inhabited into the 19th Century. The castle's architecture is still intact and has hardly been altered over the years.
