Strawberry Bank, Dundee, a photo-essay.

One of the pleasures of my recent trips to the River Tay has been a stroll down the evocatively named Strawberry Bank, a narrow lane stretching down to Magdalen Green from the raised beach that is the Perth Road.

The lane is so narrow as to accommodate only one vehicle at a time and is about a quarter mile long, so is virtually free from traffic for most of the time.

Meeting another car on this lane would mean a long reverse for someone.

The lane is flanked on both sides by high walls which hide a number of smart properties with well kept gardens from public view and is a haven of peace and quiet in the busy city.

It is always a pleasure to walk down to the river using this route.
