You don’t have to be a golfer to love this day trip from Edinburgh to St Andrews, a lovely town with one of the oldest and most prestigious golf courses in the world. You just have to enjoy the sight of rustic villages and stunning nature, a decadent afternoon tea, a photo opportunity with beautiful Forth Bridge, and castles and cathedrals. Oh yeah, and then there’s that golf course, which, for the golf lover, is like making a pilgrimage.
St Andrews does have something for everyone — white sand beaches, twee streets and buildings, cathedrals, castles, and museums. But it’s golf course, the Old Course, that often draws people here. This day trip from Edinburgh has all that and more.
Meet your guide in central Edinburgh, and then hop on a comfortable air-conditioned coach and travel to Fife along the Fire Coastal Path, passing rustic fishing villages and a rocky beautiful seashore. Stop at 19th-century Forth Bridge, one of the most picturesque in all of Scotland, for a photo opportunity and then continue on to St Andrews.
On arrival, explore the quaint town with your guide, taking in sights such as St Andrews Cathedral, St Andrews Castle and Swilcan Bridge, and then sit down for afternoon tea at the famous Old Course Hotel. The award-winning menu includes scones, lemon pancakes with clotted cream and many other pastry delights to go with your tea. All while overlooking the 18th green of the Old Course.
While in St Andrews, take some free time to walk along the white sandy beaches, see more of the golf course, check out the famed university — Scotland's oldest and where Prince William and Kate Middleton were schooled — or visit the St Andrews Golf Museum (own expense).
