Dundee, Scotland. RRS Discovery

Launched in Dundee in 1901, she was the last of the traditional wooden three-masted ships to be built in Britain. The Discovery Point  Museum in Dundee, where the RRS DISCOVERY is located,  is well worth a visit.

It must be a great experience sailing on one of these. But I will settle for visiting her in on display.
