Located in the West End of Dundee, our Serviced Apartments are ideal for both leisure and business travellers looking for a home away from home while in town. If you happen to be staying at our Serviced Apartments during this time of year, why not read our guide on the best spots to take your Autumn stroll? 

Camperdown Country Park

Let's take a look at  Camperdown Country Park first.

At this wonderful wildlife facility, immerse yourself in the forest nature, with a broad selection of exotic creatures to see and outdoor activities to enjoy. There are almost 400 acres of area to stroll about on, so you'll have lots of opportunities to walkabout. You can also travel to the centre's beautiful neo-classical Camperdown House, play golf, or participate in one of the centre's weekend activities. This family-friendly location, surrounded by nature, is ideal for a crisp autumn day.

Dawson Park

You can also go for a stroll at Dawson Park during the autumn season. In November, Dawson Park, another lovely open place to stroll around, features sports grounds, a cherry avenue, tennis and basketball courts, a bowling club, and much more. Don't let this spot pass you by without at least having a look!

Dundee Treasure Hunt Trail

Who'd have guessed that the city had its own treasure trail? This 'treasure hunt' type walking route will provide you with the ideal chance to explore Dundee with a group of friends or family throughout the Autumn season. Wrap yourself in a warm coat and walk the route for about 1.5 kilometres (it takes around 1.5 hours to complete). 

Balgay Hill

Balgay Hill has a complex network of walkways that lead to spectacular views of the River Tay. The Mills Observatory is located in the woods, where you can see a variety of space exploration and astronomical displays, as well as interesting planetarium presentations (for all ages). This is an excellent route for you to use whether you want to walk the dog, discover the marvels of space and time, or soak up the spectacular fall vistas.

Dundee Botanic Gardens

Who could forget the Dundee Botanic Gardens? These gardens (a 23-acre length!) are an inexpensive and pleasant way to spend an afternoon next to the River Tay. You can eat lunch here, then spend a couple of hours learning about the garden's lovely plants, flowers, and herb gardens, which are equipped with a popular cafe, gift store, and greenhouses.
