Living at Ballumbie Rise


Local Area

The Location

Ballumbie Rise is located just a 5 minute drive from Kingsway East in the quiet suburb of Ballumbie. It sit’s next to the picturesque Ballumbie Castle Golf Course and enjoys views across the greens and parkland.

Living Life

There’s no place quite like Dundee, it has a wealth of history, a proud character and a bright future and last year it was voted the best place to live in Scotland. It also has the distinction of being the sunniest city in Scotland, which are all good reasons to make a beeline for Ballumbie.

This established suburb is within easy reach of both Dundee city centre and Broughty Ferry, so there is no shortage of amenities of all kinds, including places to eat and drink, concert venues and football stadiums, as well as other leisure facilities such as watersports and cycling.

With a golf course on the doorstep and open countryside just a stone’s throw away as well as excellent connectivity to Dundee and beyond, Ballumbie offers the best of all worlds – close to the city but with a more peaceful vibe.


Ballumbie has both a primary and a secondary school and the city is home to both Abertay University and the University of Dundee, which includes a Medical School and the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design.

Travel Links

Good bus services link Ballumbie with the centre of Dundee and surrounding areas. Edinburgh is just 90 minutes away by rail and it’s a short hop from Ballumbie to the A90, which connects Dundee to Perth and Aberdeen. Glasgow can be reached by car in an hour and a half and it is just an hour by road to Edinburgh Airport
