Tour Overview

Private tour from Glasgow. En-route marvel at the UNESCO listed Forth railway bridge opened in 1890. St Andrews is located on the east coast of Fife and has a very nice West sands beach and surf. The town is world famous, of course (pardon the pun) for golfers better known as ‘The Home of Golf’. A dream place to visit the ‘Old Course’ and take photos. Explore the medieval ruins of a castle and a RC Cathedral which was the largest church in Scotland and once held holy relics of the martyred Saint Andrew. A charming & romantic University town easy to walk around and lots to offer any visitors including delicious fudge doughnuts.

 

What To Expect

A very enjoyable day tour to the East coast passing through Fife to Saint Andrews University town. Once was a thriving Royal burgh and market protected by a medieval walls and fortifications. The is a nice beach front and shore, where the surf rolls in. The Cathedral of Saint Andrew once held relics of the martyr’s bones. Important religious and educational places of interest, including the 12th Century Cathedral and the first Scottish University founded in 1413AD. Famous for the sport of golf and museum. You can also play a game of putting & also pose to get that memorable photo of Swilcan bridge.
