St Andrews in Fife – an amalgamation of history, sports and art

Kilrymont, as it was known ages before, transformed into the present St Andrews after great many religious influences. With many Celtic monks, pilgrims and traders arriving to the town in the medieval era and St Andrew becoming the patron saint of Scotland, it became a centre capable of great political influence. As population increased and trade improved, the town itself expanded significantly during the middle ages. The University of St Andrews, the oldest in Scotland was founded in 1413 and enhanced the town’s reputation of being an academic and trading centre.

As with other towns that are rich in history, St Andrews too went through its share of bloody and turbulent times with the anti-Protestant movements and the following riots which in turn ended the religious influence of the town. After a brief decline, the town jumped back in form to become a sought after tourist destination. It has also come to be known as the ‘home of golf’ due to its world-class courses. The clear and fresh air and sandy beaches along with the countless medieval structures makes St Andrews a sight for sore eyes.

The Leuchars Rail Station that is linked to London, Edinburgh and Aberdeen serves the town from where numerous bus and taxi services can be availed to get into town. Regular coaches from Edinburg, Glasgow and Dundee make travel by road that much easy.

For sports enthusiasts

Being the ‘home of golf’, it is certainly a heaven for those who favour the sport. What should not be forgotten is that the town is also great for a variety of other sports activities. Great many routes and networks have been put together for cyclists to take advantage of and the beaches of St Andrews offer great scope for activities like surfing, swimming, beach kayaking, traction kiting, land yachting etc. If you are an equestrian lover, then do not forget to hit the Barbarafield Riding school.
