Dundee Area Command

With a history that stretches back over 800 years, Dundee is Scotland's fourth largest city, situated on the northern banks of the River Tay in one of Europe's most impressive geographic locations.

Traditionally famous the world over for the "three Js" - Jute, Jam & Journalism - Dundee today is a modern, vibrant city where the future is being forged now. Advances in medicine and the development of the digital media and entertainment industries are achievements of a city and people famed for their innovation and invention. A revitalised city centre and retail scene, the thriving Contemporary Arts centre, the impressive Ice Arena and a huge choice of leisure options symbolise a confident and optimistic city of the 21st century.

With a population of 148,300 (March 2016) Dundee has two universities whose students make up almost 10% of this number. Dundee styles itself as the "City of Discovery" and is named after Captain Scott's famous Antarctic exploration vessel, the RRS Discovery. The ship is berthed in the city and has been central to the setting of a new course for Dundee.
