Scotland Private Tour, St. Andrews.

Saturday, June 27, 2009

Today, we visited Stirling Castle, St. Andrews and the Fife Coast. St. Andrews has much to offer the visitor including:

  • the famous Old Course (golf):
  • Castle; and
  • ruined Cathedral and associated buildings.
The video below shows the interior of the ruined cathedral which was Scotland's largest and most magnificent church.

There is a museum which houses a collection of medieval sculptures and other relics found on the site.

The tall tower is called St. Rule's. This was part of an earlier cathedral building, which is accessible and affords superb views from the top of the tower.

This evening I have gathered a few images of the famous Old Course at St. Andrews. This is the home of golf which has played in the locality since the 15th century.The building in the centre-left of the first image is the Royal & Ancient Golf Club.


Here is an image of play in progress on the Old Course. This is a public course and not owned by the club. Local residents enjoy rights to play.

St. Andrews Tour

Wednesday, January 23, 2008

Today, I am presenting images from a tour of St. Andrews. This is a very popular location with much to offer the visitor including: the famous Old Course (home of golf), a ruined castle and ruined cathedral. The city is located on the edge of the sea and the beaches featured in the opening scenes of the film Chariots of Fire.

Here is the famous Swilken Bridge where most visitors have their photo taken.

Here is the Old Course with Royal and ancient admin building.
