Broughty Castle & Museum

[Broughty Castle & Museum]

Broughty Castle was built at the end of the 15th century, under the command of James IV to defend the Firth of Tay from marauding English ships. Dundee City council operates the interior as a museum about the local area, but in this writer's opinion the imposing exterior is the biggest draw, looked after by Historic Scotland. The tower house was later embellished with a surrounding gun battery and commands extensive views across the estuary into Fife.
