Things to do

St Andrews is positioned in a spectacular location. On one side it has the wooded hills of the Fife countryside but to the north and east it looks out over a rocky headland to the dramatic waters of the North Sea. For more than a thousand years, the town of St Andrews has been a focal point for bishops and kings, saints and martyrs, students and holidaymakers Рnot to mention the greatest golfers in the world.

Whenever you walk in St Andrews, and it is a walking town, you are reminded of its colourful and rich history. Add in the bars, restaurants, historic ruins, beautiful beaches and the world famous golf courses and you have a destination that is truly unique.
