What to expect

Crossing the infamous Forth Railway Bridge, you head into Fife which is where all the action takes place. This tour allows you to visit off-the-beaten-track parts of Fife, including gorgeous East Neuk, filled with historic fishing villages and stunning coastal scenery which some of which you'll get a chance to explore.

You'll then head on to the namesake of the tour: St Andrews. Here you'll get a chance to explore at your leisure, taking in the beautiful Cathedral, discovering the stunning Castle, or perhaps just enjoying a stroll down the beach. If you recognize it, it's with good reason, it was used as a set in the film Chariots of Fire. Perhaps if you love golf you'll play a hole or two, it would be rude not to, given that St Andrews is the spiritual home of the game.

Heading next to Falkland, you'll be seemingly transported back in time, as it has remained a very traditional village. If you're a fan, you may recognize it as post-war Inverness as shown on Outlander. Here there are plenty of opportunities to potter around, window shopping, royal palace visiting or coffee drinking, before heading home.
