Edinburgh, United Kingdom
St. Andrews is a must for golfers. We had plenty of time to walk around this charming college town, including a stroll at the Old Course (tourists are free to walk anywhere on the course but watch out for errant golf balls). Allow an hour for the Golf Museum, which is next to the course. It is loaded with golf memorabilia. If you are shopping for golf paraphernalia there are several stores downtown that are less expensive than the shops next to the course. On the way back to Edinburgh we stopped at Falkland Palace. This was a pleasant surprise. Among the residents through the years was Mary Queen of Scots. Our guide was informative and helpful with good humor.
This is a first-rate tour and we thoroughly appreciated it. Even a little rain couldn't dampen our enthusiasm. Glendalough was the highlight, but the Wicklow mountains were a close second. Our guide/ driver, Joe, was informative, friendly, engaging, had good humor, and can sing Irish tunes (as well as many other songs). If you get Joe, you got a grand slam.
