Your guide to St Andrews

All About St. Andrews

For a small seaside town, St. Andrews has a surprisingly large influence on the world beyond Scotland’s shores. From devout believers to fervent golfers, all kinds of people have made pilgrimages here for nearly two millennia. Its historic cathedrals were among the most important religious sites in the medieval world — legends claim the remains of the Christian apostle Saint Andrew rest in the town. An equally important intellectual hub, the ancient University of St. Andrews ranks as the third-oldest in the English-speaking world. And, of course, St. Andrews is considered the birthplace of modern golf, with several legendary courses drawing international golfers to its coastal links.

The best time to stay in a holiday rental in St Andrews

St. Andrews sits on the same latitude as Moscow, though its weather is warmer and milder than its northerly location might suggest. In fact, the town is one of the sunniest and driest in Scotland thanks to its lucky location, which shields it from some of the rainier and chillier weather patterns found elsewhere in the country. Even so, most travelers plan their visits in late spring and summer, which are the warmest months. High temperatures in spring and autumn average in the 50s Fahrenheit. Expect long days and highs reaching the mid-60s in the summer. Days are brief and snow is often on the forecast in winter, when temperatures stay in the 30s and 40s. Bring a waterproof jacket in every season and extra warm layers in the coolest months.

Top things to do in St Andrews

St. Andrews Cathedral

Arguably one of the most awe-inspiring structures in medieval Europe, St. Andrews Cathedral was a pilgrimage center until its downfall during the 16th-century Scottish Reformation. It now sits in ghostly ruins, with partial stone walls and gables marking the outline of this once-great landmark. History buffs and archeology enthusiasts will want to take their time exploring the grassy grounds and museum.

Old Course

Claiming to be the oldest and most famous golf course in the world, the public Old Course has earned its nickname: the Home of Golf. Securing tee time requires reservations several months in advance. The course offers guided tours of the grounds. The coastal links border the 2-mile West Sands Beach, a popular seaside walk.

Fife Pilgrim Way

Relive the journey of medieval pilgrims on this long-distance footpath, which stretches 64 miles from North Queensferry and Culross to St. Andrews. The trail passes many natural and historic landmarks in the Fife countryside. Ambitious hikers may tackle it in a multi-day trip, though most visitors choose a specific segment for a shorter afternoon trek.
