The weather forecast for this week had promised to be typically Scottish (cold, wet and windy) but upon peering out through the curtains this morning, it thankfully wasn’t as bad as the previous night’s news had suggested. Plans for the day were minimal and after a light breakfast it was time to wander into Dundee to see if the place springs to life on a Monday. Like any reasonably sized UK town these days, the same chain stores clog up the centre and a couple of large retail outlets flank either end of the main streets. However, there are some lovely historic buildings and churches that are impressive to see. There are also a lot of statues, sculptures and monuments dotted about the place which bring back any sense of character taken away by Cafe Nero/Next etc. The weather is expected to get more Scottish as the week progresses so indoor attractions will be called for, I reckon.
