Alex Salmond has revealed supporting the construction of V&A Dundee ranks in his top “hat-trick” of achievements as first minister.
Speaking before a visit to the city next week, he shared his pride at having helped make the project for Scotland’s first design museum become a reality.
“Abolishing tuition fees, taking the tolls off the bridges and helping with the finance for the V&A in Dundee — that’s not a bad hat-trick,” he said.
Mr Salmond has already paid an informal visit to the iconic building.
He said the structure designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma “looks fabulous”, adding: “I think it is going to do great things for the city.”
