In response to the question from the OP. Yes I live in one of the top 10 as set out in that list.

I’m not sure Dundee will ever get over the prejudices associated with it though, that’s the problem. While generations have opinions built from older family members, etc.

Either way I love where I live and wouldn’t change it for the world. Mainly cause I’m not old and want to live in the middle of nowhere. I can appreciate a 15 minute walk to city centre to work as well this avoiding public transport.

I've actually been through it and it's a nice enough wee place, but it's one of those ones where the very name puts you off (cf. Nitshill, Spittal etc.)
Wormit should be what you do to a  dug.
I agree, but thats why I like the name. It makes it sound unappealing, which helps it fly under the radar a wee bit. It's actually quite posh, once you see the houses that aren't on the main road.

Couldn't live in the borders, I'd spend all my time giving strangers the evil eye based on the above average chance they were Tories.
When heading to Forfar on Saturday, I muttered "Tory c***s" as I drove past the welcome to Angus sign.

I really love Dundee but that is based almost entirely around the reading rooms, that place allowed Dundee to shine and made it somewhere to go for an amazing night out in a way you never would to Aberdeen or Stirling. Dundee loses a lot if that place shuts down and shame on the council and coppers who presumably are behind it and who should be trying to preserve the jewel in the cultural crown.

The waterfront plans are impressive but I hope the finished thing integrates as well as they hope. Seems too car centric but you csnt move the tay bridge. The V & A looks cool but having been at a seminar in there it's just two big expensive coffee shops for posher old people.

Dundee is shite. 
"Rejuvenated waterfront" = a poxy wee museum, a Beefeater/Premier Inn and a dreadful-looking budget hotel on top of the station entrance. 
You can see everything worth seeing in Dundee (Dundee Law and the Lemmings statue) in the space of a couple of hours. 
 

Can tell you travel just up the kingsway lol

I worked in an office on said rejuvenated waterfront for three years m80.

I think I'm lucky to have be brought up in Aberdour, pretty much down hill from there. We are pretty luckily in general in Scotland I've spent the last week in London and it's an utter hole once you leave the center

Don't talk shite. Where do you draw the line where central would stop?  There's some lovely areas. Like any big city there's bad parts, the secret is not to go to them.

I like what's happened with Dundee, but even with the re-generation of the waterfront it's still got a ways to go. Back in the days Reform St. used to be the place to shop, but in recent years it's just filled up with takeaways and empty units.  That's an area that could do with investment.

However, Dundee's not unique in needing city centre re-generation. Most Scottish towns and cities have High Streets that are dying....it's a pity.

Still, Dundee still has got some cracking boozers....whenever I visit mates and go out in the city centre these days I'm always suprised what a good night is to be had.

And it's still got the Arctic. Great pub :lol:

If I could live anywhere in Scotland it'd be an east neuk of fife village. Crail, Anstruther, somewhere like that.




Have you ever actually spent any time in the east Neuk? It’s filled with inbred arseholes who don’t like “incomers”. Strange strange place.

Amazed that he watched an Orange walk and didn't put in a shock that some scottish people obsess over Irish politics. Maybe he expected it. Glad to hear that he loved our pies
