What You Can Expect
Once over the bridge you'll enter the Kingdom of Fife, an isolated peninsula surrounded by the waters of the Firth of Forth, the Firth of Tay and the North Sea. The highlight is the area known as East Neuk. The small fishing villages hugging the coastline here were infamous as a paradise for smugglers.
You'll then stop in Anstruther before traveling to the medieval town of St Andrews, the capital of the Scottish Church for almost 1,000 years and home to the oldest university in Scotland (600 years), attended by Prince William.
St Andrews is most famously the home of golf, with the Old Course just off the town center. You will have several hours to explore this famous town.
From St Andrews, you'll take a pleasant drive through central Fife to Falkland. Falkland Palace dominates this old village, and was one of the main residences of the old royal family of Scotland. Returning to Edinburgh you will cross the Lomond Hills and pass Loch Leven, where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned.
The Scottish Highlands and Islands are Europe's last great wilderness! This personalized tour is as close as you can get to touring in your own car, with the added benefit of gaining intimate knowledge of Scotland. Traveling in a small group means you can take lots of stops and reach "out of the way" places, giving you more time off the bus to discover the real Scotland.

Great tour guide. Dougie was very knowledgeable and gave a great tour. Learned alot about the history of the places we visited. Showed us how to get around St. Andrews and good places to eat/visit. Very pleased with the tour and would highly recommend.
What a fun way to see Scotland. We had an amazing tour guide, who was funny and informative and clearly loves her countrysadly, her name is escaping me right now. I would highly recommend this day trip!
The trip was fantastic. Our driver/guide was great. He was very engaged, entertaining and thoughtful.
Great day with experienced, professional staff. We arrived at the meeting point to begreeted by a happy smiling lady who checked us off the list and answered any questions that we had about the day or Edinburgh's icity or sights / tours. Wenwere then taken to the bus to meet the driver Danny Y who just happened to be a local lad who had grown up in the Fife fishing village. Daniel gave us as quick run down of the tour and then we were off. We received a great local informative commentary from Daniel.Very informative as Daniel had also studied Scottish history at University. Then there was a stop at a local fishing village and time for a coffee and light eats. Then back on the road and a leisurely drive to the town of St Andrews where we got a tour of the town.and were then dropped off at the Royal and Ancient St. Andrews Golf Course. We could walk around the golf course and town for 3 hours which went very quickly. We stopped at a castle on the way home and were even dropped off at our hotel. What a great day and highlight to our trip. Well done all at Rabbies tours and especially Daniel Y. Thank You
We had a wonderful time on our trip to St. Andrews! The weather was beautiful! Our guide was fantastic!
Everything about it was outstanding!
It was very informative and I learnt a lot about the site visits
My son and I did this tour on September 29, 2015 and couldn't have been happier. Gordon was our tour guide and not only was his personality great, he was extremely knowledgeable. The reason I confirmed this tour was because there were no more than 16 individuals which made the trip small and intimate. My son was thrilled that we were able to spend almost three hours in St. Andrews, the highlight of his Scottish trip! The weather was perfect, the roads clear and the sky blue! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone going to Edinburgh. It was hosted by a local tour company which was great. They have a small cafe where you can get a bite to eat and a coffee while waiting for your tour. It was well organized and just loads of fun.
I had a wonderful time on this tour! The tour guide was so nice and very knowledgeable. All of our stops were beautiful. St. Andrews was my favorite stop. Loved walking around the city and seeing the golf course was incredible. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Scotland!
