St Andrews
The home of golf and one of Scotland's most historic towns

After crossing over the Firth of Forth and its iconic bridges, we continue heading North for an hour until we reach the pretty coastal town of St Andrews. Famed for being The Home of Golf, and also for being home to Scotland’s most prestigious university (founded in 1314 and meeting place of college sweethearts Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge) there is a lot more to this charming town than just golf and royalty! With its sandy beaches, medieval street plan, cathedral and castle, you will find plenty to occupy you during our two hour stop here.
