Picture Gallery - Frigate Unicorn

A hidden gem in Dundee and a wonderful Asset to the City's Maritime past.

His Majesty’s Frigate UNICORN, of 46 guns, was built for the Royal Navy in Chatham dockyard, and was launched in 1824.


The classic sailing frigate was a fast and powerful warship, and was one of the most successful and charismatic ship designs of the age.


UNICORN is a unique survivor from the brief transitional period between the traditional wooden sailing ship and the revolutionary iron steamship, and is now one of the six oldest ships left in the world.


Step on board this historic Warship and travel back in time to the days when Britannia ruled the waves.
