What could be better than spending a cold Nov. 30th in the town named after the patron saint of Scotland? I know, nothing, right? Unless you like the sun, that is, and then you should possibly just stay home. Otherwise, get your thermals on and find out why St. Andrews is such a popular tourist destination.
St Andrews is located in the Fife region, on the east coast of Scotland and has a long and distinguished history. Most people, these days, have at least heard of it as being the town where Prince William met Kate, when they both studied at the University there, which was the first in the nation, founded in 1413 and remains the third oldest English speaking Uni on the planet. St Andrews is also famous as being the home of golf and boasts several high quality courses, including the outstanding Royal and Ancient Golf Club at The Old Course, and the world class, 5 star, Old Course Hotel.
As well as the town’s impressive history, it has a real old world charm and is a fantastic place to explore the historic buildings, eat and drink, and do a spot of shopping in some of the wonderful independent boutique stores. Also, it has golden, sandy beaches, although November maybe isn't the best time to be visiting them. If you're looking for ideas of what to do around town, look no further:
