Leaving Edinburgh behind we head northwards to the Firth of Forth. There are wonderful views of the amazing Forth Rail Bridge as we make our way into the ancient Kingdom of Fife. Well stop to capture the view at Aberdour before touring through the East Neuk of Fife where the coastline is dotted with delightful fishing villages. Well see Pittenweem and St Monans, home to a small fleet of working fishing boats, before stopping in Anstruther, the largest community along this part of the coast.
St Andrews is named after Scotlands Patron Saint and has a rich heritage. On our arrival well have a brief orientation tour before making an extended stop. Theres around three hours of free time so you can discover the town in depth. For golf fans there will be time for a selfie at the Old Coursewhere the outcome of many a Championship Game rested on just one putt!
Away from the golf course you can discover the University, the oldest in Scotland. Walk in the footsteps of William and Kate as you stroll through the grounds to discover the flourishing hawthorn bush said to have been planted by Mary, Queen of Scots in the 1560s. If you are feeling particularly energetic why not visit St Andrews Cathedral where you can climb St Rules Tower to enjoy glorious views over the town. If shopping is on the agenda youll find a wide choice of quality shops where you can pick up a souvenir that is bound to impress your fellow members at the Club!
Later our tour continues with a drive over the Lomond Hills where, if time allows, well stop to view Falkland Palace, once a favourite retreat of the Stuart Kings. The attractive village of Falkland doubles as Inverness in the popular Outlander TV series.
The last part of our tour will take us to Loch Leven, whereMary, Queen of Scots was imprisoned, then we cross the Firth of Forth once more. Well stop in the pretty village of South Queensferry where there are excellent views of the three Forth Bridges to enjoy. From here its a short drive back to Edinburgh.
