Saint Andrews Town.
Another very pleasant day trip to the East coast shore and parts of Fife. Yes, St. Andrews is a must see attraction for any golf players but the tour does please everyone. There are other places of interest including religious and historical, the University and also has a nice beach. It is a great town to walk around. Once was a thriving Royal burgh and market protected by a medieval walls and fortifications. The Cathedral of Saint Andrew Roman Catholic once held relics of the martyr’s bones and was founded 12th Century. However the site has much earlier Christian beginnings. Nearby, for your lunch you can opt for traditional ‘fish & chips’ and if you have a sweet tooth you have to try our fudge doughnuts. On route we also cross the Firth of Forth (Scottish sea) and see the famous Forth railway bridge which dates 1882.
We go to the East coast via the new built Queensferry bridge spanning across the Firth of Forth and see the more famous Railway bridge a masterpiece of Victorian engineering. We go pass Loch Leven castle, in 1567 held prisoner Mary Queen of Scots who was forced to abdicate in favor of her infant Son and he then taken from her care. Next stop for tea/coffee and you should try the fudge doughnuts. We arrive at Saint Andrews before midday. I show you around the layout and sites, including the famous golf courses, the beach, the cathedral & castle ruins, also the University and the market town. Take the time to explore more and there are good options for lunch.
