It's worth making the climb up Dundee Law (174m) for great views of the city, the two Tay bridges, and across to Fife. The Tay Rail Bridge – at just over 2 miles long, it was the world's longest when it was built – was completed in 1887 and replaced an earlier bridge whose stumps can be seen alongside. The original bridge collapsed during a storm in 1879 less than two years after it was built, in the infamous Tay Bridge Disaster, taking a train and 75 lives along with it. The 1.5-mile Tay Road Bridge was opened in 1966. Dundee Law is a short walk northwest of the city centre, along Constitution Rd.
