The fourth-largest city in Scotland, Dundee lies on the Firth of Tay's northern bank as it feeds into the North Sea. Dundee has two universities and one independent school, plus thirty-seven primary and nine secondary state schools.
Dundee was historically famous for jam, jute and journalism. However, modern technology parks and a host of companies working in synthetic fibres, biotechnology, precision engineering and instrument-making are testimony to how Dundee has developed its post-industrial economy.
