This is an ancient cemetery in the heart of the city of Dundee. It was laid out and given to the city by Scottish royalty. It has a huge history and there are guides for it that are well worth taking.

Very important piece of history right in the middle of Dundee. There are some incredibly old graves, including the witches stake.
