Is Saint Cyrus a 'trap street' in Dundee?


Trap streets are very interesting — they are designed to deliberately catch out someone who steals the workings on maps.

After recently posting a picture on Dundee Culture of the beautiful Windsor Street in the city’s West End, I added that it was in the ‘Saint Cyrus area’ and the majority of the replies were ‘what is Saint Cyrus???’. The area a lot of Dundonians refer it to is Sinderins which is the area off to the side of the city’s Perth Road.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the city's landmarks are still closed to the public until further notice and events due to be held in the city.
