The Fife region
St Andrews coastline has played its own part in the development of the town. From the Eden Estuary, the shore takes in the sweeping curve of St Andrews Bay, sandy beaches and cliffs topped by the Castle before turning sharply at the harbour to face the North Sea, another fine beach and the cliffs at Kinkell Braes. The area attracts a rich variety of birds and sea life. The Fife Coastal Path affords good walking and lots of interest.St Andrews boasts two exceptional beaches. The award-winning West Sands, separated by dunes from the Links, is one of the finest beaches in Britain, and was where the opening sequence of Chariots of Fire was filmed. Superb views can be obtained looking back towards the town. The Eden Estuary Nature Reserve lies at the north end of West Sands and is run by the local Ranger Service. East Sands, running between the harbour and Kinkell Braes, has a modern Leisure Centre with leisure pools, sports facilities, restaurant and bar. A popular footpath runs along the foreshore. The town has an active sailing club.
St Andrew's relics were kept in the chapel of St Mary on the Rock, the remains of which can be seen above the harbour. After the founding of the Cathedral in about 1160, the relics were moved there. It was also about this time that the town first came to be known as St Andrews. The presence of the shrine made St Andrews one of the great centres of religion in medieval Europe, and a place of pilgrimage for many thousands of pilgrims every year.

For many visitors, though, it's a game that draws them here, for St Andrews is the home of golf, the sport having been played here for some 600 years. The Old Course is arguably the most famous golf course in the world, and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club is still the ruling body for the rules of golf. Fittingly, the Old Course hosted the Open during the millennium year and did so again in 2005 and again in 2010.
St Andrews is a town meant for exploring. The medieval layout of the town centre remains intact, with the main shopping areas concentrated in Market Street and South Street, with Bell Street and Church Street connecting the two principal streets. Take time to explore - on foot - and take pleasure at the surprises and delights you will find.
St Andrews University is the oldest in Scotland and the third oldest in Britain. Again, it was the status of the town as a centre of religion that promoted the creation of a university, which was founded in 1411 by Bishop Henry Wardlaw. You can visit the quads of two of the colleges - St Salvator's in North Street, endowed in 1450, and St Mary's in South Street, endowed in 1538. Visitors to St Mary's Quad can still see a thorn tree said to have been planted by Mary Queen of Scots. The third college was St Leonard's, endowed in 1511, which is now an independent co-educational school, but you can still reach its Chapel, which was formerly a hospice for pilgrims.

"We will come again"
Excellent location, particularly as we have a dog and easy access to the Lade Braes and Cockshaugh Park was important to us as we walked there every morning. It is beautiful and out of the wind if it is windy. The access to town is an easy level walk, good for eating out and shopping as well as reaching the beaches and golf course, if that is your thing. The flat is comfortable, plenty of room and light, bit old fashioned but not off putting. We doing the key waiting for us and left it in the same place and never saw anyone. The upstairs neighbour is nice and helpful, the garden small but enclosed and private. Parking can be a pain during the day as it is on the road. Overall, lovely!

"Great location, very spacious internal fixtures and fittings poor!"
House was in a perfect location back and front garden very well maintained. Great for walking into town. Lots of space inside for 5 adults.The quality of the furniture was poor for the rental charged - every piece of furniture was mismatched and had seen better days! The crockery was charity shop standards.It actually felt like a student flat inside - maybe it had been in a previous life.However it was an enjoyable week just felt it was overpriced and very little effort had been put into making it fit for visitors.Also parking was on busy street or in pay car park which could be problematic.No visitors book to help with appliances or connecting to internet etc - couldn't figure out grill so gave up and the heating system also controls the flat above with a sign advising you should advise next door if you change the settings which was bizarre!
