St Andrews is a former royal burgh on the east coast of Fife in Scotland, named after Saint Andrew the Apostle. The town is home to the University of St Andrews, the third oldest university in the English-speaking world and one of the UK’s most prestigious

Getting There: Leave the city via the M8 towards Edinburgh. Exit at junction 2, joining the M9, then the A8000, then the A90, all the while following signs for the Forth Road Bridge. Continue north over the bridge on the A90 (which becomes the M90) until junction 8 then takes the A91 eastwards, following signs to St Andrews


Museum of the University of St Andrews

The Museum of the University Of St Andrews (MUSA) is the newest museum on the St Andrews scene. It offers four galleries about the long history of the University of St Andrews

Blackfriars Chapel

Sight of a ruined 16th century building in the middle of St Andrews’ South Street is slightly surreal. It is the remains of Blackfriars Chapel, part of a monastery operated by Dominican friars. One of the first buildings to be ruined during the Scottish Reformation, just a tiny section of Blackfriars Chapel now remains.

Martyrs’ Monument

The Martyrs’ Monument was erected in memory of the Protestant reformers who were executed in St Andrews before and during the Scottish Reformation. George Wishart, Patrick Hamilton and others have their names inscribed on this monument, which stands overlooking the sea on The Scores, just beyond the Old Course
