Dundee is the fourth largest of Scotland's cities and has some of the finest ecclesiastical, public, commercial and industrial buildings in the country, evidence of its Victorian pre-eminence as a port and manufacturing centre. But beyond the city lies rural Angus, possessing fine Pictish and early Christian monuments, major medieval ecclesiastical survivals at Brechin and Abroath, tower houses, castles and country houses from Edzell, with its remarkable formal garden, to the vast Baronial fantasy of Glamis and William Adam's House of Dun. This guide also covers buildings as diverse as the houses of the coastal ports, the high-rise flats of post-war Dundee, Stevenson's Bell Rock Lighthouse and Frank Gehry's unique Maggie's Centre.
