Canada has been a place of refuge for many Scots over the last 250 years. Before 1850 more than 800,000 immigrants had settled in Canada, many of them Gaelic speaking Scots displaced by the dreadful highland clearances. The bilateral trade between the two country's since then through the various fishing fleets, including the whaling ships from Dundee, and the fur and resource traders of Glasgow has maintained the common Celtic heritage.
The room itself sits at the very top of the building in the converted attic space and is designed to feel like a waterside cabin. Two large windows give a commanding view back over the river to the new Victoria and Albert museum site and the centre of Dundee. It was from here that those whaling ships set sail many years ago. The bedroom supports a sitting area and a basic self catering kitchen zone. The en-suite shower room adds to the log cabin feel of the room, but it is overshadowed by the enormous cabin bed which itself is enhanced by a large skylight.
