What better way to spend your day than along a stunning coastline? And what better way to fill your day than by exploring two historic places? Dundee might be known as the ‘sunniest city’ in Scotland, but it’s the history and museums that you’re likely to remember.

And then there’s St Andrews. You’ve likely heard of it. St Andrews Cathedral was once one of Scotland’s most magnificent buildings and a pilgrimage centre. And though it stands in ruins today, there is still something mesmerising about it. That’s the whole town of St Andrews. Elegant architecture backed by sweeping coastal views. Castle ruins nestled alongside an ancient golf course.

Tour Details
Highlights:

St Andrews Cathedral – This ruined cathedral was once one of Scotland’s most magnificent buildings.

St Andrews Old Town – Immerse yourself in 1,000 years of history as you explore the winding streets and ancient castle.

The Old Course – Golf was so popular in Scotland, it was banned in the 15th century. And nowhere was it more popular than in St Andrews, ‘the Home of Golf’.

Dundee – Visit ‘Scotland’s sunniest city’ and explore the historical waterfront and nautical museums.

Itinerary

Aberdeen

Here’s hoping you get a sunny day because today you’re going to get to know the coastline pretty well. Sun shimmering off Scottish water. Believe it or not, we do get sun here. But even if it’s a cloudy day, the Scottish coastline is as stunning as it is dramatic. You leave Aberdeen, ‘The Granite City’, and head south along coastline and through countryside towards Dundee.

 

Dundee

Your driver-guide will drop you near the waterfront, which is perfect for you not just because of the views, you’ll also be close to the V&A Dundee. This international centre for design showcases the best of Scottish creativity, and design from around the world.

Or, if you prefer, you also have the Royal Research Ship Discovery to explore. Built in Dundee, it was the first purpose built Antarctic Survey vessel and at the beginning of 20th century, it took the first British expedition of the modern era to Antarctica, including Irish explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. Enjoy the Discovery’s extensive galleries, videos and films, interactive displays and artefacts.

Or perhaps exploring the city and waterfront is at the top of your list. The time is yours to do as you please.

St Andrews

After your visit to Dundee, we journey over the Tay Road Bridge with views over the Firth of Tay. We then enter one of the remaining ancient kingdoms of Scotland… the Kingdom of Fife. The home of golf, a hub for outdoor-enthusiasts, and landscapes spotted with history, Fife is a world of its own.

We continue south to the medieval town of St Andrews. St Andrew is the patron Saint of Scotland and according to legend his remains were washed up on the Fife coast. St Andrews is also home to the third oldest university in Britain and is proud of its dramatic cliff-perched castle ruins.

Not to mention, St Andrews is the home of golf. Golf-fanatics will love getting to know the Grand Old Lady, also known as the Old Course at St Andrews, considered the oldest golf course. You have around two and a half hours to explore this fascinating town.

Aberdeen

After St Andrews, we take a pleasant drive through the rolling countryside back to Aberdeen.
