The new V&A museum was opened in Dundee in the Autumn of 2018 to great acclaim. Scotland’s first ever dedicated design museum, it was created by Japanese architect Kenko Kuma and sits on the Dundee waterfront.

Already a huge success with visitors, Mike & I decided to make a day trip. Driving across the Queensferry Crossing, we then headed north through the beautiful Fife countryside; stopping for coffee and home baking at the Scottish Deer Centre near Coupar.

Upon arrival we were blown away by the external structure of the V&A, which is inspired by the waves and sea cliffs of Scotland. The interior is huge & airy with a café, restaurant and excellent family areas.

The current exhibition is entitled “Video Games”, Dundee being the world leader in this genre.

So many new cafes & restaurants to choose form in the city, but Mike & I opted for the amazing ice creams at the long established Viscocchi’s in Broughty Ferry!

Driving back in the evening sun, again via country roads, made for a perfect day trip from Tantallon B&B & Edinburgh
