[HMS Unicorn]

The wonderfully named HMS Unicorn is the lesser known of two famous ships found in Dundee. This one is Scotland's only surviving wooden warship, launched in 1824 as part of a programme to re-strengthen the Royal Navy after the Napoleonic Wars. The ship was, however, never used in anger, and instead became a training vessel with a roof rather than sails. Perhaps this is why the boat is so well preserved; there's still plenty to explore across 4 decks.
