Reres Hill

A modest hill forming a wooded park, Reres Hill rises to 44m (144 feet) to the north of the Monifieth Road (A930) between Broughty Ferry and Barnhill, 4 miles (6.5 km) east of the centre of Dundee. The park extends to 2.4 ha (6 acres) and its mature trees include Beech, Oak, Scots Pine and Sycamore. The hill provides a spectacular view over the Firth of Tay.

The land was the property of John William Ramsay, the 13th Earl of Dalhousie (1805-80) and was acquired by Broughty Ferry for use as a public park in 1868. The castellated entrance was constructed as a monument for the Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887 at the expense of Provost Orchar of Broughty Ferry.
