Find a holiday home on the east side of St. Andrews right by the world’s most famous golf course Old Course, or footsteps away from the majestic cathedral ruins to the east.

The area and getting around

The best way to get to St. Andrews

Dundee airport is in fact closer – just 30 minutes away by car – but it is a relatively small airport that serves few routes.

Make St. Andrews part of a tour of Scotland

If you have the time, then the best way to visit St. Andrews is as part of a road trip around the natural and man-made highlights of Scotland, with scenery magicked straight out of a Harry Potter book, some of the world’s most haunting castles, majestic islands and lochs, and that ever so famous Scottish welcome.

Travellers and activities

St. Andrews for golfers

St. Andrews is the true spiritual home of golf, and the place where it was invented, 500 years ago. The first golf course in the world was built here, and now there are ten world-class courses in and around the town, including the world-famous Old Course, with staggering greens and the most extraordinary putting surfaces in the world. If you are a big fan of golf, you really should make the pilgrimage to St. Andrews at least once in your life!

St. Andrews for families

St. Andrews has scores of family-friendly attractions to fill a half-term break. Take your kids on the St. Andrews self-guided themed Treasure Trail, where they will become a pirate for the day as they take a self-guided adventure in search of tantalizing treasures. Another great half-term activity is to be had at Barbarafield Riding School, which arranges Fun Days for kids who fancy spending a day riding ponies and learning how to look after them. If the sun is shining, take your little ones to the two miles of golden sand at Kingsbarns Beach, and search for awesome little creatures in rock pools, and when the tide is out, well-preserved fossils!

St. Andrews is where golf all started, and nowadays, more than 230,000 rounds of golf are played in the town every year!
