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.
