For over 130 years, the ClockTower has been a landmark, dominating the waterfront of the Port of Dundee, Scotland. Built in 1877 so that its clock face was visible to any vessel alongside in the harbour or in the mouth of the Firth of Tay. The ClockTower served as a huge warehouse, a stone and iron cathedral of commerce of the Victorian Age.
Arcing barrel vaulted ceilings and stout, cast iron pillars throughout bear witness to the craftsmanship and care that went into the building of this unique landmark. Today, the building has been restored creating 9 apartments and 3 double storey penthouses inside this monument to Dundee’s heritage, enjoying stunning vistas over the City and the Firth.
