Name Plate

The name “Dalhousie” appears five times thus: Dalhousie Terrace, Perth Road; the same designation twice in Broughty Ferry; and Dalhousie Place, Lochee Road, and Dalhousie Road, Broughty Ferry.

The older place-names are probably from Fox Maule, 11th Earl of Dalhousie (1801–1874), and the later from John Ramsay, 13th Earl of Dalhousie (1847–1887).
