Dundee is now home to one of Scotland’s newest leisure pools and The Olympia is the number one destination for people looking to make a splash when visiting Dundee.

The leisure pool includes a rapid river, wave pool and seated bubble beds, while younger children and families can look forward to splashing around in the toddler’s pool with smaller slides and fun interactive features.

Those who like their swimming more natural can participate in organised sessions in the river, seaside and in reservoirs locally with life guards on hand.

Just outside the city boundary Monikie Country Park offers twice weekly sessions over the summer and Ye Ancient Amphipeans Bathing Association (YABBA) offer training sessions, events and even a New Years dook.

Cycling

With the Sidlaw hills just outside Dundee, there is plenty going on, and available for all cycling tastes, road, track, time trial, mountain bike, cyclo cross and duathlons.

Dundee also has a green circular which provides a route to cycle round the city in a 26 mile route with helpful signs pointing out places of interest along the way.

The Dundee Law

The Law is a must-see for visitors and locals to truly appreciate Dundee’s unique location. Formed from an extinct volcano it’s the best place to take in magnificent, panoramic views of the city, the River Tay and the surrounding area.  On a clear day, visibility stretches over 45 miles and at night the twinkling lights of the city and bridges is mesmerising.
