Hero Kings, fish & chips and the "Home" of Golf!!
A full day visiting the beautiful towns of South Queensferry, Dunfermline, Lower Largo and the iconic St Andrews. The tour includes a visit to the 11th century abbey of Dunfermline and the Tomb of King Robert "The" Bruce. The birthplace of Robinson Crusoe and the "Home of golf", St Andrews. In St Andrews you have plenty of time to explore the little streets, the ruins of the castle and Cathedral and take a stroll on the famous "Old Course".
Leaving Edinburgh we travel north to South Queensferry. The town is named after the 11th century Queen
Margaret. From South Queensferry we drive over the Forth Road Bridge, giving us a spectacular view of one of Scotland's greatest man-made landmarks - the Forth Rail Bridge. We now head towards one of Scotland's ancient Capitals, Dunfermline. Here we visit the ancient ruins of Dunfermline Abbey, the burial place of 'St Margaret, ' her husband King Malcolm Canmore and King Robert 'The' Bruce. Our next stop in the little fishing village of Anstruther, full of old cobbled streets, take a walk along the seafront to the harbour or try the award winning 'best fish & chips in Britain'. We then continue north to the medieval town of St Andrews, the home of golf and the Mecca for all golfers the 'Old Course'. And we don't forget St Andrews University, the oldest university in Scotland and the third oldest university in the English-speaking world (following Oxford and Cambridge).
