St Andrews and Villages of Fife 1 day tour from Edinburgh
We leave Edinburgh, crossing the iconic Forth Bridge into the ancient 'Kingdom of Fife'. We enjoy a photo stop at Aberdour before continuing into the East Neuk of Fife.
We stop in the town of Anstruther, home of the Scottish Fisheries Museum, then we travel through the villages of Pittenweem, Crail and St. Monans, once thriving fishing centres which were made prosperous by trade with the continent. We arrive in the beautiful medieval town of St.Andrews in time for lunch. Here you can enjoy a walk around the town, home to the oldest university in Scotland, celebrated Old Course golf course right on the beach, and famous University and Cathedral. Enjoy approximately three hours of free time to explore its medieval buildings and wonderful cobbled streets in the centre, and have lunch.
Heading homewards we travel across the Lomond hills, descending to Loch Leven (scene of Queen Mary Stuart's imprisonment and escape) and on to the picturesque village of South Queensferry where we enjoy our final stop before returning to Edinburgh.
