For a smallish town, population around 15,000, gorgeous medieval St Andrews in Scotland has quite a few claims to fame. For starters there’s the golf. St Andrews is the heart-center of golf worldwide. Argument rages over who actually invented the game; the Dutch have tried to claim it, so have the Chinese but the Scots really do have claim to the modern game as we play it. The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews is a name to inspire veneration in the hearts of most, so we’ll give it to the Scots. And the course which stretches along clifftops is beautiful enough to just walk, even if you can’t raise the money or connections to actually be allowed to play.
