Former Clydesdale Bank Building, High Street, Dundee

Dundee's principal thoroughfare, the High Street connects the Nethergate with the Seagate. Now pedestriansed, it runs in front of the City Square. The buildings now date from the 18th and 19th centuries, although the plan of the street is Mediaeval and Gardyne's House, now just behind the High Street, is a unique survival dating from c.1560. St Paul's Episcopal Cathedral occupies a site on the corner of Castle Street (No.1 High Street), while a 2.4-m (8-foot) bronze statue of the cartoon character Desperate Dan was unveiled here in 2001.
