St. Andrews

#scotland #alisonsadventures

My boyfriend Brian and I were lucky enough to visit the beautiful seaside town of St. Andrews (located northeast of Edinburgh). It’s famous for its many golf courses, St. Andrews Castle and the University of St. Andrews, founded in 1413. Here are a few snap shots of our visit including St. Andrews beautiful botanical gardens which I would recommend you see. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

This is St. Andrews infamous Old Course, with the landmark Swilcan Bridge at the 18th hole. People travel far and wide to get their photograph taken next to it! ⛳️

Small Touches Make A Big Difference

This beautiful cafe had old school desks as tables each with their own drawer. Visitors to the town are encouraged to write on napkins and leave a friendly note! 📝

On our way home to Glasgow we stopped by the beautiful fishing village Anstruther which contains the best fish and chip shop around! Delicious! 😋

    One of my favourite places to visit! I always feel so at home when I go to St Andrews - used to visit as a kid so I think it triggers some memories. Lovely to see this story 🙌🏻

    @copperline Thank you - it was our first time visiting and it didn’t disappoint! I’ve heard so many people say they enjoy it! ☺️

    Indeed - so many lovely buildings, and then there’s the beach.... we visited the botanic gardens years ago, before we had the boys (dachshunds) so haven’t been able to go back since. Would be good to see the gardens in spring!
