About Us

There has been a pharmacy here at our Gray Street address since the turn of the 19th Century, and we became R.S.McPherson Pharmacy in April 1974.  It has constantly changed shape, layout and even colour since then, keeping up with the demands of being a busy pharmacy. The most recent change has been the takeover of the business in June 2018 by Davidsons Chemists, a local company established in 1897 with sound principles of knowledge, professionalism and care which are the driving forces to achieve the highest level of customer satisfaction and patient care across their 40 branches.  We have continued as McPherson Pharmacy as it holds an iconic presence in Broughty Ferry and carries with it an excellent reputation for high quality and iconic luxury gift, skincare and fragrance ranges.  As a pharmacy we are at the heart of your community and strive to provide excellent pharmaceutical care and are making community pharmacy your first port of call.

As a pharmacy we have always strived to make your visit to us as positive an experience as possible. We will always have more than one pharmacist on duty, as we believe that is the best way to ensure that you get the attention you deserve from our team without distraction. Your healthcare is very important to us and we will endeavour to meet your needs in an efficient yet sympathetic manner.
