Welcome to Broughty Ferry

Four miles to the east of Dundee city centre lies the seaside suburb of Broughty Ferry. Known as "the jewel in Dundee's crown", its fine seafront esplanade and sweeping sands provide the perfect place for a relaxing stroll or a quiet picnic.

Once regarded as the "richest square mile in Europe" because it was home to the wealthy jute barons who built Dundee's textile fortunes- it can trace its origins back to the 15th century fisher folk who built their homes around the harbour close to Broughty Ferry Castle.

Although the industries with which Broughty Ferry was once associated are now gone, the town remains a lovely holiday destination and a pleasant waterfront of Dundee. Broughty Ferry was once known as "the Brighton of Scotland", with trains dispensing visitors throughout the summer and a line of bathing boxes along the sands revealing bathing belles in knee-length costumes. These days are remembered every July when the Broughty Ferry Gala Week is held to celebrate the start of the holiday season and take advantage of the town's salubrious setting

In the spacious streets set out in a grid fashion, the discerning shopper will find individual boutiques, galleries & gift shops, fine eateries, pavement cafes, stylish bars, coffee shops and all the essential stores and services you could wish for.

Additionally with an ideal central location, Broughty Ferry also offers visitors the perfect base from which to enjoy some of the finest golf courses, fishing or sightseeing to be found anywhere in Scotland.

Using this site is a quick and easy way to find an excellent choice of family friendly hotels and B&B's, or to explore the wide ranging delights offered by one of Scotland's most rewarding traditional waterfront towns.
