On our way to Saint Andrews, patron of Scotland, you will enjoy the landscape of Fife County, located on the east coast of Scotland. The mountains and valleys of this town host the best courses and golf clubs in Scotland. However, Saint Andrews stands out for the British Museum of Golf, next to the Old Course. The first thing we will do is a panoramic visit of the town to show you everything that can be visited: the cathedral, the castle, the golf course, the beaches and the most outstanding streets. It will be the moment, therefore, to have lunch and take advantage of the great variety of restaurants, supermarkets and pubs.
Saint Andrews is the birthplace of golf, but it is its University that occupies most of the historic center of the city. Next to the Cathedral, both buildings will be two of the tourist attractions for which you will have to take time and visit. Finally, we can enjoy a walk through the stunning beaches of the North Sea to appreciate the coastal beauty of the country.
From Saint Andrews to the Bridges of the Firth of the Forth
Before returning to Edinburgh, we will make a brief stop in South Queensferry. The Firth of the Forth will offer us the vision of its bridges, especially the railway bridge over the river Forth. This bridge was the longest of its time (in the 19th century) and later incorporated into the World Heritage Site.
