Spotlight on the waterfront
Dundee’s waterfront has seen many changes over the decades. We take a look today at some of the changes.
Clockwise, from top left, we have first a view of the city’s waterfront with a view of the Tay Road Bridge approach from Tayside House. The Stakis Earl Grey Hotel can be seen in the foreground.
Next, we see Dundee Lord Provost Tom Mitchell at the Earl Grey Hotel to unveil the Stakis Company’s new logo. He unfurled a flag featuring the new symbol. Stakis Earl Grey Hotel was located at Dundee’s waterfront.
The next picture shows Dundee Leisure Centre (Olympia) and Discovery Quay before the ship moved there and the Discovery Visitor Centre was built.
Lastly, we have a view of the waterfront (site 6) from Dundee Leisure Centre. The railway station and the walkway leading to it can be seen.

A lot of green space as drivers come off the Tay Road Bridge. The former Stakis Hotel provided views over the river for guests.
All change in this area – and not just for trains. The walkway was dismantled several years ago and the station has had a revamp.
A toast to the new Stakis hotel which unveiled a new logo.
