Even from a distance St. Andrews delights the visitor. It’s a town for all seasons and all tastes. Named after Scotland’s patron saint, St. Andrews, it is the home of the world’s oldest golf club, founded in 1754. The Club is the headquarters of world golf and the supreme authority in golfing matters. Crowds from all over the world have gathered round the 18th hole of the famous Old Course, knowing just how much depended on a putt.


You’ll travel along the main route before branching off onto country roads with fine pastoral views heading towards St. Andrews. Upon arrival into St. Andrews Town, you’ll stop at the atmospheric ruins of St. Andrews Cathedral, which are among the most photographed in Scotland. Your tour continues with a panoramic drive-through of St. Andrews seeing the bustling market town, and then enjoying an overview of the layout of the golf courses. You’ll be able to view from the outside, the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews. You’ll have some free time for a short stroll around areas of the Old Course, or to browse in one of the many small specialist shops selling golf memorabilia and golf clothing.
