NATIONAL PICNIC WEEK: VisitScotland have included Magdalen Green in a list of top picnic spots

National Picnic Week is very nearly here (21-30 June) just in time for the sunnier days in Dundee…

A whole week dedicated to bare feet on fluffy rugs, al fresco dining, and watching the sun go down.

VisitScotland’s latest ‘we’ve Scot you covered’ promotion features a long list of beautiful Scottish locations to enjoy picnicking in.

The list includes the glistening beaches of Orkney and Shetland, scenic lochs in the Highlands and Outer Hebrides, and peaceful walkers’ mountains in Perthshire.

And of course… the much-loved Magdalen Green, stating:

Enjoy the views over the glistening water of the Tay and the Tay Railway bridge from Madaglen Green, the oldest park in the city. While you tuck into your feast in this civic space the whole family will be entertained from its iconic bandstand, built in 1890, which hosts concerts on Sunday afternoons during the summer.

We at SeeDundee certainly love the Magdalen Green.

Check out our article on 5 reasons why we can’t get enough of the place here. 

Do you have a favourite picnic spot that trumps the rest?

Maybe there’s somewhere with a great trail for exploring with the kids, or a secluded spot with a view for two?
