Unfortunately, we aren’t in a position to offer any accommodation packages but would recommend Dundee Backpackers Hostel;

Dundee also has loads of hotels so keep your eyes peeled for cheap deals from all of the usual suspects (Travelodge, etc).

 We shall do our level best to keep everyone up to date!
