Driving Tour of St Andrews and the Fishing Villages of Fife
The ancient town of St Andrews is one of the most fascinating and famous towns in Scotland, internationally known as the “home of golf”. In St Andrews you will find the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, the British Golf Museum and of course, the legendary Old Course.
St Andrews is steeped in history and is home to Scotland’s oldest university, where Prince William met Kate. A visit to the stunning ruins of the old cathedral and castle standing in the midst of the town is an excellent way to soak up the unique atmosphere.
Stirling Castle and the Trossachs National Park Area
Stirling Castle is situated in the heart of the country and is the gateway to the highlands. Its walls have witnessed many sieges and battles over the centuries. For many years Stirling Castle was the seat of Scottish royal power, several Kings and Queens were crowned in its now magnificently restored Great Hall. A visit here is a visit to one of the centres of Scottish history.
Then on to the romantic beauty of the tranquil lochs and wooded glens of the Trossachs National Park, otherwise known as “the Highlands in Miniature” which offers many stunning photo opportunities for visitors.
