"We had lots of free time to wander about in St Andrew's. Of course we had to check the golf course more closely, walk along the amazing beach and wander through the cathedral grounds and ruins."

Itinerary


Departing Edinburgh at 8.45am, we head to South Queensferry to stand under the imposing Forth Bridge. Built in 1890, it’s one of Scotland’s greatest man-made landmarks and a UNESCO World Heritage Site with views over the Firth of Forth. Onwards we cross the water and travel on to Falkland, used in the filming of Outlander.

St Andrews is our destination for the afternoon with plenty of free time to explore this fascinating town. Home to Scotland’s oldest University, and particularly famous for its ancient golfing associations. St Andrews also boasts beautiful beaches and the famous ruins of its Castle and Cathedral. Whilst in St. Andrews you will have a chance to join a free guided walking tour conducted by your tour guide.
