Floor Plan

Some four miles east of Dundee on the north bank of the Firth of Tay, Broughty Ferry promises the best of both worlds: a coastal lifestyle with the vibrant city on its doorstep.

During the Industrial Revolution, when Dundee established its wealth in ‘jute, jam and journalism’, the former fishing and whaling village of Broughty Ferry was transformed into one of the most affluent suburbs in Europe, which accounts for its rich stock of grand detached villas and mansion houses. The seaside resort remains a popular tourist attraction today, with visitors drawn to its long, sandy beach and esplanade, 15th-century Broughty Castle, and its array of fashionable eating and drinking spots. Broughty Ferry enjoys all the local amenities you would expect of a small town, which are supplemented, of course, with world-class shopping, culture, and heritage in Dundee. The UK’s first UNESCO City of Design, Dundee was also named Best Place to Live in Scotland 2019 by The Sunday Times. In addition to excellent road (and public bus) links for local and national travel, Broughty Ferry station operates regular services to Dundee and further afield to Aberdeen, Arbroath, and Edinburgh. Daily flights to London are also available from Dundee Airport. Broughty Ferry offers education at all levels, with nursery schools, three primary schools, and a secondary school. Independent schooling and childcare options are also available nearby, including the prestigious High School of Dundee.
