The Old Tower and Churches, Dundee

Dundee is the fourth largest city in Scotland. The name "Dundee" comes from two Celtic parts, dun meaning fort and d è meaning fire. When David Earl of Huntingdon, brother to King William II, returned from Third Crusade around 1192, he kept his vow to build St. Mary's Church. The St. Mary Tower is the oldest building in Dundee dating back to late 15th century. This helps to form part of the City Churches which are St. Clement's Church (1787-1788), St. Paul's and St David's (1841-1842) and finally St. Mary's church (1843-1844). These three churches were all under this single building.
