Advantages Meeting lots of great people
Disadvantages Wondering if they will all turn up
Hi everyone. Following the full of fun weekend we had in Glasgow last August I thought it would be a good idea to plan a meet on the east coast of Scotland and posted a little bit on my about me a couple of months back to see if anyone would be interested in meeting up in Dundee on the weekend of 30th June. I'm pleased to say that I've had quite a few people get back to me with very positive comments and thought it was about time to formally announce it.***Details***
Dundee - City Square at 11.00am on Saturday 30th June, 2007This time may of course change as times goes on so check back for any updates.
Dundee is on the East Coast of Scotland and is easily accessible by train, coach or car. It also has a small airport, which has flights running to London City Airport on a daily basis so those further afield might fancy this option. The airport, train station and bus depot are all within a 10-minute walk from the city centre.Trains connect from Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh so if you can get to one of those cities then you are only a stone's throw away. A lot of trains coming by Edinburgh go straight on to Dundee without any changes but at Glasgow you will have to walk from Central Station to Queen Street Station if you are travelling from the south.
Coaches come through Dundee from all the main cities as far as I've been made aware so that shouldn't be too much of a problem either.If you are coming by car, and I know this is a popular thing to do so you can do a bit of sight seeing in the area, then it's very easy to get to Dundee City Centre, as there are easy signs to follow, no matter which way you are coming in.
***Places To Stay***There are a number of hotels/travel lodges etc to stay in Dundee or on the outskirts, as well as some smaller places too. I haven't stayed in any of them personally so I can't say what they will be like but most can be found on www.yell.com under Hotels in Dundee.
The ones near the centre are:-Apex City Quay Hotel
The beauty of these ones is that they are all within minutes of the town centre and they all have car parking on site.There are lots of other Hotels and B&B's in the surrounding area whose details are all at the above site but I didn't want to give a huge list and confuse everyone. It is reasonable to consider staying in Monifieth or Broughty Ferry, both are just north of Dundee or at Invergowrie, which is just south of the city.
