Travel Scotland on our ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ tour and visit St Andrews Castle & Cathedral, discover coastal Caves, enjoy a scenic walk at Loch Leven Nature Reserve and visit to the Historic Dunfermline Abbey on a 1 Day, Adventure Group Tour starting in Edinburgh

The stunning historical town of St Andrews is a must-stop-by destination whilst exploring the east coast of Scotland. The ancient cathedral and castle offer a fascinating historical insight into this magnificent place.

Our tour begins in Edinburgh at the pick-up location and will depart at 9 am sharp. Driving through Scotland’s 2nd largest city, information about the castle and other interesting sights to see around the city will fill your ears.

Exiting the city, we’ll be crossing the Queensferry Bridge, the newest addition spanning the River Forth. Enjoy the views whilst we’re crossing this uniquely styled bridge.

After the bridge, we now head in an easterly direction towards our first stop, Wemyss Caves. Here we’ll get out of the van to walk around some fascinating caves which have carvings dating back to the Iron Age.

After a short saunter around the caves, we’ll continue our journey east to the elegant village of Elie, where the locals host cricket matches on the beach when the tide is out.

We take a longer hike along the coastline, passing by landmarks such as Lady’s Tower and Ardross Castle, soaking up (could be literal depending on the rain that day) the spectacular views out over the Firth of Forth and towards the North Sea.

Once we arrive back at the van, there’s no time to lose! We’ll depart swiftly, edging closer to our main destination. Before that, your guide will drive you through some of the fishing villages which are absolutely stunning.

We have arrived in St Andrews! Here you’ll spend time exploring the town, soaking up the historical heritage of the castle, cathedral, and university buildings. And we couldn’t let you forget about the famous Old Course which is the home of golf.

It’s Lunchtime! Your guide will recommend places to grab a bite to eat before we start the return leg of our journey back to Edinburgh.

That doesn’t mean we are done exploring though! Departing St Andrews, we travel inland towards the fascinating Loch Leven National Nature Reserve. We’ll head out for a short walk to a beautiful viewpoint of Lochleven Castle, which Mary Queen of Scots visited during her reign.

After learning about the long history of Loch Leven, we now travel south towards Scotland’s NEWEST city. Yup, you read that right, newest city, Dunfermline. The Abbey has some of Scotland’s most powerful and influential Kings and Queens buried there.

None more so than the main man himself, King Robert the Bruce (Robert I), who is famed for his role during the Wars of Independence.

What a day it has been! Packed full of information and amazing scenery! It is now sadly time to head back to where it all started, Edinburgh. Your guide will drop everyone off at the pickup location from this morning and bid everyone goodnight!
