  St Andrews & Fife tour

Whether your main interest is in history, golf, the university, or simply looking around the town, St Andrews has so much to offer the visitor. You can visit the ruined cathedral and castle, and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the town, which is home to Scotland’s oldest university. If you are a golfer, you will want to see the world-famous Old Course, where the British Open Championship is held every five years, as well as the ‘Royal & Ancient’ clubhouse and the British Golf Museum.

On the way to St Andrews we cross over the River Forth into the Kingdom of Fife, and we will visit historic Falkland, where scenes from the Outlander TV series were filmed. Falkland Palace, once the royal hunting lodge of the Stewart Dynasty, was partially restored in the 1890’s by the Marquis of Bute and features lovely gardens. Then we travel through the fertile agricultural lands of mid-Fife, before arriving in St Andrews.

After spending some time in St Andrews you will visit some of the picturesque fishing villages in the East Neuk of Fife (‘neuk’ is the old Scots word for ‘corner’).  Because they are so unspoilt, and have been almost bypassed by the 20th century, it will almost feel like you have taken a trip back in time.
