Discovery Point Dundee



One of the places I visited in Dundee was Discovery Point, it was built back in 1986 to take the ship RRS Discovery. I think it is built on the old Camperdown Docks  

Looking from across the Roundabout you can see the Discovery and the Museum
The compass points at Discovery Point
RRS Discovery you can read about my visit to it here
 
The Museum from the waterside 

This was a drinking fountain, not sure if it is still used as one though

This is a commemoration of the  Long distance Seaplane Record  that started off from near this location. I might add during the Second World War Flying Boats were stationed around here

I will bring more from the city next week
