frontage to Liff Road. The site slopes gently down from north to south and
extends to around 7.70 acres (3.16 hectares).

former Care Home), former Steadings and Stores, a Lodge House and a further
House fronting directly on Liff Road which is in poor condition.

LocationFirth of Tay approximately 25 miles east from Perth. The city benefits from a
mainline railway station sitting on the East Coast Line with a further rail link to
Perth and the Central Scotland area. Dundee also has the benefit of excellent
road links to Aberdeen to the north with access to the main motorway network
via the M90 and M9 to the south and east.
Dundee remains the main administrative and commercial centre for the Tayside
area which has been through a period of urban regeneration in recent years. A
number of redevelopment projects have been completed and there are various
current development and re-development schemes on-going within City Quay.
The Dundee Waterfront Project is also well underway with major infrastructure
improvements now complete. The long awaited V & A Museum and Visitor Centre
opened to the public in September with visitor numbers currently exceeding
initial expectations. In addition there has been major redevelopment of Dundee
Railway Station including the provision of further hotel accommodation to serve
the city. Overall this significant investment in the city will undoubtedly increase
economic activity and continue the reinvigoration of Dundee.
The site lies off the south side of Liff Road, opposite Thomson Park to the northwest
of the city centre but close to The Kingsway. The usual local amenities are
nearby with easy vehicle access to The Kingsway and good public transport links
to the City Centre.
