About Riverview Lodge
Riverview Lodge sits majestically on the banks of the River Tay in Newport-On-Tay. The imposing property is thought to have been the home of a wealthy Dundee jute baron at one time.
The home has undergone major refurbishment and now provides residents with facilities of the highest standards. The majority of rooms are single with en suite facilities including easy accesss showers.
We pride ourselves in providing a very personal service in surroundings more akin to a large family home. We only cater for twenty residents which contributes to the homely feel.
Out and about around Newport on Tay
Newport owes its existence to a ferry that crossed the firth here from at least the 12th Century from a site once called Seamylnes.
The town expanded during the 19th century, firstly with the building of a new harbour in the 1820s to a design by Thomas Telford, and secondly with the development of a fashionable residential commuter settlement for wealthy Dundee jute manufacturers. Formerly known as New Dundee, the greater part of this settlement was built on the Tayfield Estate of the Berry family and includes many interesting examples of Victorian architecture.
The 2-mile (3.5-km) long Tay Rail Bridge, designed by W.H. Barlow & Sons and opened in 1887, replaced the earlier bridge of Thomas Bouch which collapsed in 1879 a year after its completion. To the east, the Tay is crossed by the 1¼-mile (2-km) long concrete multispanned Tay Road Bridge which was designed by Fairhurst & Partners and opened in 1966.
