From Edinburgh our St Andrews & The Kingdom of Fife Tour heads to South Queensferry and the Forth Bridges, giving you the chance to take photos of three of the most remarkable bridges in the World. After crossing the Firth of Forth, our first stop is the magnificent Dunfermline Abbey, burial place of King Robert the Bruce. Here, you will have the opportunity to photograph his ornate golden tomb. You will also have time to wander around the Abbey, it's grounds and see the results of the “reformation”, a time when churches were destroyed and desecrated, supposedly in the name of God.
Passing the birthplace of Andrew Carnegie, the world famous philanthropist, we travel along the Fife coast and the charming little fishing villages of the “East Neuk”, stopping in Anstruther, an old Herring stronghold where you can take the opportunity to try “the best fish and chips in Scotland” or have a snack at the Fisheries Museum. We then continue on to St Andrews, home of golf, religion and of course St. Andrews University. You will have the chance to spend a couple of hours in this historic and beautiful town. In good weather, the beach featured in the movie “Chariots of Fire”, are a particularly popular sight. You’ll also be able to visit and enjoy the intriguing 16th Century tunnels beneath the Castle.
Golfers may want to visit the grave of Young Tom Morris, the Golf Museum, the Links Course putting green, or simply walk along Grannie Clark’s Wynd, a public right-of-way, over the 1st and the 18th fairways of the old course.
