View Full Tour Itinerary

Departing from Edinburgh we make a stop in South Queensferry so you can view the impressive Forth Rail Bridge and the graceful Forth Road Bridge. The journey into the Kingdom of Fife commences with our crossing the Firth of Forth by the new Queensferry Crossing. Travel to the East Neuk of Fife, "Neuk is an old Scots word meaning corner, to explore the sleepy fishing villages of Anstruther or Crail.

The village of Kingsbarns has a long association with the game of Golf, however today we have the opportunity of visiting the newly opened Kingsbarns Whisky Distillery for a tour of the distillery and tasting*. If whisky isnt your thing then the nearby gardens of Cambo* offer an oasis of peace and tranquility.

On our arrival in St Andrews there will be a short orientation tour of the town before enjoying an extended stop (around 2 hours) during which time you can explore the many attractions from the ruins of the 13th Century castle to Scotlands oldest university. Of course St Andrews is renowned as the home of Golf and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, the games ruling body for much of the World, is located overlooking the Old Course. The R&A organises the Open Championship which has taken place in St Andrews on many occasions. You can learn more about the game and the important role that this community has played in its development by visiting the British Golf Museum (optional).

Our last visit of the day is to Falkland where we will step back in time to visit this traditional Scottish village and explore Falkland Palace*, the country residence of the Stuart Kings and Queens. The gardens contain the Royal Tennis Court which dates from 1539 and is the oldest in Britain!

From Falkland we meander our way back to Edinburgh.
