The City of St. Andrews:

On The Map: St Andrews is located on Scotland’s east coast. Dundee is less than 30 minutes to the north, while Edinburgh 1.5 hours to the south.

Poised and well-groomed, St. Andrews is the pilgrimage site for golfers around the world.  It is also Scotland’s oldest university town, founded in 1410. The town of St. Andrews is small—only three main streets and an open, airy feel with long stretches of sandy beach on either side of town. There are acres-plus of golf links in every direction.  The locals are proud of their town and it has a refined, old-fashioned ambience. Many original buildings have survived, and the castle and cathedral have been rebuilt to preserve their remains.  The main streets and cobbled alleys are lined with crooked houses. Medieval churches line up and meet at the ruin of the 12th century cathedral. St. Andrews is a light, seaside resort that feels busier and larger than it is.  More importantly, it is one of the most notable and historic towns in Scotland.
