Things to see in St. Andrews

The town St. Andrews in Scotland is mainly famous for golf. There are several golf courses, but the most famous one is St. Andrews Old Course with next to it the Royal and Ancient golf club. Although the building is not that big, it has become the most recognizable structure of this town. The town center is a joy to walk through and consists only of a few street being South street, Market street, North street and The Scores which all runs parallel to each other. The main attraction of St. Andrew's besides golf is the cathedral. There are only ruins left of it, but it is set in a special environment. It is surrounded by many graves and other ruins and the grass between it is kept in perfect green condition.

Next to St. Andrew's cathedral you can also find St. Rules tower. Behind the cathedral is a small harbor and a little beach. Towards the other side lie the ruins of St. Andrews castle. Other notable buildings are the Holy Trinity church, Black-friars chapel, leisure center and St. Salvator's chapel. All of these are well within walking distance. In fact, it only takes 15 minutes to cross the whole town enter. St. Andrews is an upmarket town and its appearance reflects this. It is very clean and low on traffic. Tourism is still important for it and there are several bars and restaurants, but you won't find fast-food outlets there.

Besides the city St. Andrews is also a great place to go to the beach. It is one of the most sunniest place in Scotland so regularly the beaches draw many people to relax near the water. Getting to St. Andrews is easiest by bus from Dundee or Edinburgh. St. Andrews is probably the most rewarding town to visit as a day trip and one of the nicest in Scotland.
