2016-08 Broughty Ferry

Broughty Ferry (Scottish Gaelic: Bruach Tatha, Scots: Brochtie) is a suburb of Dundee in Scotland. It is situated four miles east of the city centre on the north bank of the Firth of Tay. The area was a separate burgh from 1864 until 1913, when it was incorporated into Dundee. Formerly a prosperous fishing and whaling village, in the 19th century Broughty Ferry became a haven for wealthy jute barons, who built their luxury villas in the suburb. As a result, Broughty Ferry was referred to at the time as the “richest square mile in Europe”. It is currently administered as part of the Dundee City council ward. At a national level, it is represented by both the UK Parliamentary constituency of Dundee East and the Scottish Parliamentary constituency of Dundee City East. Several road and rail routes are located within the area; Broughty Ferry railway station is situated in the center of the suburb, and the A930 road skirts its main retail area. Broughty Ferry is also linked by several bus routes to its neighbouring suburbs and to central Dundee. Three primary schools – Barnhill, Forthill and Eastern - are located in Broughty Ferry, and they all serve as feeder schools to Grove Academy; one of the most academically successful secondary schools in Scotland. The suburb has several sporting connections, and is the home of junior football club Broughty Athletic F.C., to which it gives its name. Furthermore, several notable sportspeople have associations with Broughty Ferry, including international footballer Frank Munro and the former Scottish international rugby union captain Sir George Cunningham. Other notable individuals with connections to Broughty Ferry include the minister and scientist Thomas Dick, the Victoria Cross recipient Hugh Malcolm, and the cartoonist Dudley D. Watkins.
