Tay Bridge is located on the south side of the Tay Estuary. It's a medium power relay of Angus which also transmitted Channel 5 to the Dundee area.

Originally an IBA landlord site, Tay Bridge entered service with 3 UHF TV channels on the 28th November 1974, with Channel 4 from September 1983 and Channel 5 from the launch on 30th March 1997. DSO was on the 4th and 18th August 2010.

ILR Dundee (Radio Tay) launched on 17th October 1980.

On the evening of 15-Jun-2006 the Tay Bridge relay was put off the air by a feeder cable fire.


Following the fire two temporary towers were put up at the site...
