St Andrews in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... things I remember as a kid have now gone , of course the ice cream is a must try , especially the Irn Bru flavor ! or Scottish Tablet Parking can be a bit of a hit and miss in the town , on street parking is available and requires a voucher which can be bought from most of the high street shops , there is also parking available at the west sands car park which is close to the open course , and gives access to the beach where chariots of fire was filmed , during the summer parking is always a problem so you really need to get here quite early You can also travel to St Andrews by train , however the town its self does not have a ra... more

St Andrews is a costal town in the Kingdom of Fife Scotland , I went there as a kid and have returned more recently as an adult , of course it is well known as the home of golf and has hosted the open competition , and again will do so this year at the old course , I would advise that unless you have a ticket for the open , when its on to avoid the place at all costs as the traffic is horrendous , and the town is very very busy One of the most iconic places for a visit when I was a child was Jannettas ice cream shop on the high street , this often as a kid was a scottish equivalent to Willie Wonkas shops lol and had a vast array of ice cream flavors which ...

St Andrews St Andrews is probably one of the most famous towns in Scotland. It has something of an international reputation, perhaps mostly due to it being the location of one of the world's most famous golf courses, St Andrews Links Course. Yet, in my personal opinion, the association of St Andrews as a golfing location has had a rather negative impact on the attraction of the town, thwarting much more interesting natural features, sites of interest and things to do that don't cost the earth (in both ways!). St Andrews and the Golf Now, I know a lot of people enjoy golf. They enjoy a stroll through manufactured 'open space'. ... Read the complete review

St Andrews is a very, very beautiful part of Scotland that is mainly known for its amazing golf course and the old course hotel that sits on it. The old course hotel has seen some of the biggest named stars stay in its beautiful rooms, such as Jack Nicholson, Guy Ritchie and Robbie Williams amongst others. Away from the golf course and the beautiful hotel though there is a lot more on offer in St Andrews, there are nice beaches should you get the good weather that is very rare in the area, a nice aquarium to visit with the kids, a very good golfing museum, some great shops and pubs and a very quaint old cinema. There are some very, very nice ... Read the complete review

St Andrews, best known perhaps to golfers the world over, is a beautiful, peaceful place for a holiday. I was lucky enough to go there for two weeks every Summer all through my childhood, since my grandparents lived there; their house was large and accommodated our family easily, giving a great base for trips out to the beach, shopping, explorations, and many other activities. * Climate * Situated in a bay on the East coast of Scotland, St Andrews has some of the loveliest stretches of beach in the country. The West Sands were the scene of the opening shots of the film "Chariots of Fire", with coastline stretching for miles, the water ... Read the complete review
