|Description ||The Menzieshill Folly|
This is the megalithic folly built as a viewing point and shelter. It consists of several massive slabs in a horseshoe shape with slabs inside forming benches. When constructed the surrounding area would have been farmland and the views of the Silvery Tay would have been unhindered by the 1960's multi-storey developments. Interestingly these are earmarked for demolition at some point so the view will be partially restored. Hopefully the folly will be preserved,(Already half of it has been removed.), as it does represent the oldest structure in Menzieshill. The Dark Stane Roundie is in Ninewells and a good bit further south.
