Eating Out in Saint Andrews
St Andrews boasts a wide and cosmopolitan variety of restaurants from Japanese to Italian, from Bangladeshi to Thai as well as establishments selling the very best top quality Scottish produce. St Andrews has such a variety of good eating places that it would be easy to eat well every night for a fortnight and not visit the same restaurant twice. On the other hand you might find a firm favourite and go back for a second or third time.

St Andrews Town Centre  

Shopping in Saint Andrews
St Andrews has a good range of independent, family-run shops and businesses where you are guaranteed personal service, a rare commodity these days. The shopping area is not large but quite unique and in 2005 was awarded Fairtrade Town status. Opening hours are fairly standard with the majority of shops opening at either 9.00am or 9.30am and closing at 5.30pm. In the summer months quite a few shops stay open later to catch those customers who have spent the day on the golf course or beach.

St Andrews Castle

St Andrews University
 

History of Saint Andrews
St Andrews has played a significant role in the history of Scotland since at least the 6th century, so called because the relics of the disciple St Andrew were brought here from Constantinople in the 8th century by a monk called St Regulus or St Rule. St Andrews University, is the oldest in Scotland and was founded in 1410. The elegant, ivy-clad buildings and delightful quadrangles and gardens dominate the town centre. The future king graduated here, and it is one of the top universities in Britain, often compared to Oxford and Cambridge.

The now ruined cathedral (once the largest in Scotland) sits adjacent to the church of St Regulus, where you can climb the spiral staircase to the top of an 108-foot tower for magnificent views of the town and its surroundings. The castle, perched on a promontory overlooking the sea, was the dramatic stage for several of the most notorious episodes of the Reformation.

Golf Holidays & Golf Breaks in East Neuk of Fife
Further down the coast, Balcomie and Craighead Links belong to the Crail Golfing Society - the 7th oldest club in the world. The Kingdom Fife has some of the most picturesque towns and villages to be found and the East Neuk in particular is steeped in history.

Crail Harbour  

Crail has one of the best small harbours in the area and is well known for the shellfish that is caught and sold here, you won't get any fresher. Following the road towards the golf courses you will bypass the Crail History museum and a road leading down to Crail Pottery. In the Summer and other school holidays the pottery puts on classes for children, who find the whole idea great fun. The Marketgate, now lined by trees, was once the largest medieval market places in Europe.


St. Monans is perhaps lesser known but is still well worth a visit. The village has an imposing Kirk with panoramic views and old castle ruins nearby. There is a working windmill which is open to the public in the summer and also an award winning fish restaurant should you wish to dine here.

Elie, which leads on into Earlsferry is a highly sought after residential area with a beautiful golden sand beach and water activity centre. In the summer Elie is particularly popular with families looking for a good day out on the beach.

Pittenweem is a classic fishing village and artists flock here to paint the beautifully rugged landscape. A large fishing fleet still operates from the busy harbour area and the village is host to a week long arts festival in August each year. The arts festival starts with a spectacular music and fireworks display and throughout the week the village is teaming with visitors who are able to browse the dozens of homes (converted into mini art galleries) which are open to the public.

Anstruther Harbour   

Anstruther, the largest in a string of pretty, old-fashioned fishing villages along the Fife coast, known as the East Neuk. A popular tourist spot with gift shops, pubs and restaurants. Boat trips (May to September) leave for the Isle of May, several miles offshore in the Firth of Forth, for seeing puffins, seals and other wildlife. Perhaps the top attraction is simply tucking into an award winning fish supper whilst watching the fishing boats coming in, or a visit to the Scottish Fisheries Museum.
