Oh help ma boab and jings crivvens, what on earth am I going to say
about Dundee that hasn't been said before. Well... em... it's got a
great pub, and Dundee certainly needs a great pub, given all the juting
and jamming and journalism things that have been going on. Because that
is what the city is renowned for: its jute manufacture, it's jam making,
and its journalism where drouthy hacks wrote about all the jute and the
jam then went to the pub for a swally and a piece of cow pie with Oor
Willie and the Broon family.
But there's so much more to Dundee than chist a wee guy wi' spiky hair
who spends rather far too much of his time perched on a bucket. You can
go and learn about jute - I mean, pause for a moment and ask yourself
this question: Do I really know what jute is? Then there's an old
sailing ship, a bronze statue of Desperate Dan and Minnie
the Minx, a stunning
railway bridge and so on.
Oh.. and there's also the pub, and a very
special pub at that.
So, make up those jeely jam pieces, repeat after
'Oh michty me,' one hundred times, and let us be
somewhere pretty good.
As a major Scottish city, Dundee is easily reached by rail and
other means of transport from Edinburgh, Glasgow, and other
