"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 8.15am, we head north towards Fife, past the imposing Forth Bridge. Built in 1890, it is one of Scotland’s greatest man-made landmarks, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We cross the water and travel onwards to the new V&A Museum in Dundee; Scotland’s first design museum and a vision of contemporary architecture overlooking the River Tay.

Our next destination is St Andrews; home to world-famous golf courses and Scotland’s oldest university. Enjoy plenty of free time to explore the beautiful beaches and romantic ruins of the castle and cathedral. Treat yourself to a locally made ice cream, before we travel to the quaint fishing town of Anstruther. We arrive back into Edinburgh around 5.30pm.
