St Andrews, Scotland

By Philippa Burne, UK, October 2012

No reviews, be the first!

These days St Andrews might best be known as the place where Prince William met Kate Middleton when they both attended university here. But it was an important Scottish town for many centuries before these two came along – for its cathedral, for golf and for the university.

St Andrews is on the east coast of Scotland 50 miles north-east of Edinburgh. The historic town was an important seat of bishops with a huge cathedral built in 1158. This is now a ruin but still one of the major attractions of the town. St Rule’s Tower in the cathedral grounds still stands and is even older than the cathedral. You can climb the stone staircase for wonderful views.
