Saint Andrews with your own local guide from Glasgow. Private only tour.
A very pleasant day trip to the East coast shore through Fife. St. Andrews is a must see attraction for any golf players, but this town has much more and something for everyone. Other places of interest including religious and historical, the University and also has a nice sandy beach. It is a great town to walk around. Once was a thriving Royal burgh and market protected by a medieval walls and fortifications. The Cathedral of Saint Andrew Roman Catholic once held relics of the martyr's bones.
We go to the East coast via the new built Queensferry bridge spanning across the Firth of Forth and see the more famous Railway bridge a masterpiece of Victorian engineering. We go past Loch Leven castle, which in 1567 held prisoner Mary Queen of Scots who was forced to abdicate in favor of her new born Son and the baby then forcibly taken from her care. Future James VI and I of England. Next stop for tea/coffee and you should try the local fudge doughnuts.
We arrive at Saint Andrews before midday. I show you around the layout and sites, including the famous golf courses, the beach, the cathedral & castle ruins, also the University and the market town. Take the time to explore more and there are good options for lunch.

Frank led us on a fantastic journey across Scotland to St. Andrews. He was extremely personable and had a great level of knowledge about the cities and towns that we traveled through on our way. Once we got to St. Andrews, he was very willing to snap pictures on the Old Course, and then lead us on a historical journey to the cathedral and castle. Additionally, he was great with our two kids (12 and 10 yrs old), no issues relating to them or opening up Scottish history to them either!
