Private St Andrews Day Tour

The historic town of St Andrews has to be one of the most charming in Scotland. Despite, its size (there are around 17,000 permanent residents), St Andrews has had an extraordinary influence on the wider world.

Pilgrims from all over the UK would travel to St Andrews every year until the Reformation in 1560. The University was established in 1413 and is still one of the most prestigious Uni's in the world. And on top of all this, Golf wouldn't be what it is today without the help of St Andrews. They say that golf as we know it was invented here!

Example Itinerary:

- Visit St Andrews Castle

- See the Old Course (oldest golf course in the world)

- Visit St Andrews Cathedral

- Visit Falkland (used as a filming location in Outlander)

- Visit Falkland Palace

- Drive back to Edinburgh via Crail, Anstruther and a few more quaint coastal villages

On this tour, you'll learn about the turbulent history of St Andrews and you'll get an insight into its special University and Golf traditions.
