Description: On a sloping site facing the river, No 10 is home to one of the nine wells in this part of the west end of Dundee. At one time, the well provided drinking water for a nearby farmhouse and two cottages. It was also the first and last water available to carriers' horses on their way to and from Dundee. Now it feeds rhododendrons and camellias, many of which came from the Rothschilds' garden at Exbury, Hampshire. Of particular interest are magnolia 'Manchu Fan' and rhododendrons 'Loderic King George' and 'Lady Chamberlain'. More recently, an area near the well has been given over to bulbs and small herbaceous plants, various irises and primulas.

Directions: Turn off A85/Riverside Avenue at the roundabout towards the Dundee Botanic Garden. Pass the Botanics and the road bears left and becomes Perth Road. Take a right on to Invergowrie Drive and then first left on Menzieshill Road. Buses 5 and 5A to the foot of Glamis Road and walk west to Invergowrie Drive.
