    Hi Folks, We are heading to Dundee in a couple of weeks to attend a conference and visit one of the kids who has just started her student life at Dundee Uni where she has moved into halls
    :party2:

    I'm looking for somewhere to stopover Friday and Saturday night and all I can find is a campsite a few miles away at Monifieth. Anyone know of anything actually in Dundee?

    P.S don't tell her mother I am celebrating the first of the brood to move out ;)

    Hi, Bluebob we used to stay at 2 places when visiting our daughter when she was at Dundee University one was Monifieth and the other was a little way out of Dundee, before you hit the roundabout for Ninewells hospital I cant recall the name of it but it is surrounded by huge trees and when travelling you wont miss it ,the facilities were pretty basic but so was the cost ,there was a place in the park in Dundee but we never stayed there, Monifieth was a very nice site facilities were first class . Good Luck in your search:)

    Thanks Mike if I can't find anything in the City I think we will book into Monifieth. Hope your daughter enjoyed University ours has really settled in and has managed to be one of the faces being used to promote the Union parties already. Ah well guess thats what being a student is all about ☺

    Hi Bluebob
    We have stayed on both sites in Monifieth, but prefer the Riverside site as it is far more level than the other one. Only other site I can think of at the moment is a Cl near Perthshire Caravans at Errol.

    Thanks Charlie. I have stayed on the CL your talking about which is next to Errol but a bit far out. Looks like Riverside is favourite
    Cheers

    Riverside level, but closer to the firing range . We levelled fine at Tay view. Nice site, nice facilities. Good luck (y)

    You are correct that river view is more level. Only managed to be level on tayview by going on a seasonal pitch by accident as could not get one of the few level pitches. Have never had any issues with being near the firing ranges any time we have been on river view, plus the showers block is better than tayview.
