  • This is a hidden gem. Though unassuming on the outside, it is a maze of artefacts on the outside. There are multiple decks to explore at a cheap price & the majority of the ship is nearly 200 years ol...  more »

  • Awesome little trip back in time. The ship seemed almost all original except the roof put onto the ship. Lots of information and a neat little display of prominent women in Dundee's history. Worth the ticket price
  • Oldest floating wooden warship. Fantastic to see this historic ship. In glad it's being renovated and restored as it has been looking worse for wear for some time. I really hope hat this becomes the centre piece of a maritime museum as Dundee would be an ideal place.
  • Very interesting visit. Nice friendly and helpful staff. Followed up by a lovely riverside walk. Excellent!
  • Really cool looking around the 4 floors of the ship. My favourite floor was the 1st bottom floor because there was like diarys in the small bedrooms. Also I asked the owner if the boat is haunted because on the last floor right at the end of the room there was a really dark empty room so I went in it and I got creeped out so I ran out then I turned behind me and the door was creaking and shutting by itself. The owner said apparently there is a ghost called George who loves children and he roams around the decks on all 4 floors. Wow that's awesome! I do recommend you going to this boat👍
  • An interesting old boat, apparently the oldest ship afloat. There's not much to see inside, and the normal entry fee (£5) is extortionate considering the lack of things to see inside. My advice would be to wait for one of the free days, or free events that happen inside and have a nose around then.
