Black Watch Parade is a shared footpath and cycleway which lies on the shoreline of the River Tay. The route connects City Quay and the Tay Road Bridge to the V&A Dundee/Discovery Point and forms part the route of the National Cycle Network (Route 77) and Dundee's recreational Green Circular Route. It also features on a historic Maritime Trail walking route.
The route can be extended westward from Discovery Point by following Riverside Walk.
Black Watch Parade will be subject to various construction works in the coming years so please look out for diversions: These works are necessary for the construction of the adjacent Waterfront Place and construction works at Site 12.
