Dundee: coolest city in Scotland or sink of humanity? On this audio tour, you decide for yourself as I take you beyond Dundee's main tourist attractions.
During the tour, you'll encounter a heroic pigeon, James Bond's grandfather and the world's worst poet. You'll learn why Winston Churchill vowed never to return here and how to survive when in the Arctic.
The tour is perfect for first-time visitors to Dundee as well as those who want to learn more about their city - such as by finding out how Dundee came to own the largest cut emerald in existence.
This audio tour takes you on a 3km walk around the many sights of Dundee, as well as the hidden corners. It takes just over an hour without stopping but you can pause the tour whenever you choose. The audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smart phone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
