Enjoy a unique look at the remarkable bridges, villages, and golf history of Scotland
From Edinburgh we head to South Queensferry and the Forth Bridges, giving us the chance to take a photo of two of the most remarkable bridges in the world, the Forth Rail Bridge built in 1890 and it’s much younger neighbour, the Forth Road Bridge. Crossing the River Forth, our first stop is magnificent Dunfermline Abbey, burial place of King Robert the Bruce. There will be a chance to photograph his ornate golden tomb. You will also have the opportunity to wander around the Abbey, its grounds and see the results of the “reformation”, a time when churches were destroyed and desecrated, supposedly in the name of God.
Passing Carnegie Hall (Andrew Carnegie, the world famous philanthropist was born here), we travel along the Fife coast and the charming little fishing villages of the “East Neuk”, stopping in Anstruther, an old Herring stronghold where you may take the opportunity to try “the best fish and chips in Scotland” or have a snack at the Fisheries Museum. Afterwards, we will continue on to St. Andrews, home of golf, religion and of course St. Andrews University. Spend up to 2.5 hours in this historic and beautiful setting. In good weather, the beach featured in the movie “Chariots of Fire”, is a particularly popular sight. You’ll also enjoy the intriguing 16th Century tunnels beneath the Castle.
Golfers may want to visit the grave of Young Tom Morris, the Golf Museum, the Links Course putting green, or simply walk along Grannie Clark’s Wynd, a public right-of-way, over the 1st and the 18th fairways of the old course.
