Wednesday 7th September @ 5.45pm – Dark Dundee Walking Tour

CILIPS Tayside invite you to a waterfront walking tour, hosted by Dark Dundee! Sails, Tales & Whales tells the tales of the sailors and scallywags of Dundee’s once-bustling port. Dundee’s waterfront area used to be harbours and shipyards that were flooded with sailors seeking to set sail and make their fortunes – and even more seeking to make trouble. From fights between sailors and locals to spies and subterfuge, the docks of Dundee could be a very dangerous place to be….

Starting at Discovery Point at 5.45pm, the tour lasts around an hour and fifteen minutes and ends at City Quay. This is a private tour organised specially for CILIPS members and their colleagues and there are 20 spaces available – please contact CILIPS Tayside Secretary Neil Paterson on to book your place now.

As the tour ends at City Quay, participants are invited to head over to Taza for tea at 7pm – please indicate when booking if you would like to join for both walk and dinner or just walk, so we know how big a table to book!

PS remember to dress for the weather….
