Guided Tour of Ancient Dundee Howff Graveyard
'The Howff' is an old Scots name for a meeting place-you will find out why on the tour! Since being gifted to the people of Dundee by Mary Queen of Scots, The Howff has been the burial place of both the rich and poor of the city. 300 years of tumultuous history is written on the stones. We pause at a couple of locations to consider Dundee`s links to the Slavery Trade and Scottish Witch Trials. There is a lot to cover in 80 minutes! The tour is over uneven surfaces and different terrains. It is around 3/4 of a mile (1208 metres) in distance and lasts for around an hour and twenty minutes. Tours will go ahead irrespective of the weather. Please do take care to dress accordingly. You must have on stout waterproof footwear for your own comfort and safety. We will be walking on fairly good cobbled paths much of the time but will be on grass or earth at gravesides, at other times. Tour departs from inside main gate at 12noon.
