Dundee is easily accessible from the main tourist route north from Edinburgh, and is well placed with road, rail, and air links. It is only a short drive from St Andrews, the home of golf, and the famously haunted Glamis Castle.
Unicorn is berthed in Dundee’s Victoria Dock, right next to the Tay Road Bridge. She is only a few minutes walk from the rail and bus stations and the city centre, and is linked to RRS Discovery by a riverfront walkway.
