Holiday In Broughty Ferry (July 2010).

Hello All,

Myself and my girlfriend are looking forward to our first holiday in Scotland together in July.

Whilst we are looking forward to visiting the surrounding cities and towns some suggestions and local knowledge would be much appreciated.

We both love good food, walking and architecture so any suggestions on suitable trips would be good.

Many thanks in advance.

"A bit further up the coast are the magnificent ruins of Dunnottar Castle



If you do fancy Dunnottar Castle, you could do worse than spending the day in Stonehaven after you've visited it. If the weather is good it's a great place to go with plenty of things to do.

There's an art deco open-air salt water swimming pool; a large beach; and a great harbour area with a couple of pubs, where you can grab a pint, sit on the harbour wall and take in the view.

Both pubs - the Ship and the Marine - also do excellent food, and there is a very good seafood restaurant called the Tolbooth in the harbour area as well.

If you are over in Fife I suggest a trip to Falkland Palace, an NTS property in the pretty village of Falkland - maybe take about 45 minutes to drive there from The Ferry.


Fife is generally a very attractive county with very different countryside depending on whether you are near the sea or further inland surrounded by farmland.

Take a hike up the West Lomond for some spectacular views on a nice day


St.Andrews will host The Open Golf Championship from 15th to 18th July 2010 so avoid the town at all costs during this time(unless you are a golf fan) Unfortunately, roads around the area can also be very busy and people will be staying in the likes of B/Ferry and Dundee and Carnoustie to commute to St.A so hope you can avoid it!

On the other hand, if you are into the gowf then enjoy yourself ! The Ferry is great for atmosphere when the Open is at Stan or Carsnootie.
