PEOPLE AND GROWING
Dundee’s esplanade provides some of the most stunning scenery in Scotland – its beauty is such that every time I view it, it leaves me lost for words like the very first time I experienced the ‘Silvery Tay’.
One of Dundee’s greatest assets is simply being able spending time on the banks of Tay. In the mid to late 1800s tourists travelled for miles to marvel at the spectacle.
‘The Dundee Esplanade is unrivalled for cycling purposes, and it is truly the cyclist’s delight,’ says the full-page advertisement in the Dundee Directory for 1898-99.
‘Be sure to visit the Whitmair Cycling Pavilion at the east end of the Esplanade, where cycles can be hired by hour, day, or month,’ it continues.
