Travel through the historic country of Fife on this day trip from Edinburgh aboard an airconditioned bus. Dive into sights that you see along the way with live commentary. Stop in the charming towns of Anstruther, St. Andrews, and South Queensferry. Leave Edinburgh and admire views of the iconic Forth Rail Bridge as you cross the Firth of Forth, and enter into the ancient “Kingdom of Fife.” Pass through Aberdour before continuing into the East Neuk of Fife.  Take in the views as you pass thorugh the picturesque villages of St. Monans and Pittenween, which were once thriving fishing.

Spend your three-hours of free time purchasing lunch, walking down cobbled streets, seeing the ruins of the cathedral and castle, or visiting Scotland’s oldest university, where Prince William met Kate Middleton. Heading homewards, travel across the Lomond hills, descending to Loch Leven (where Mary Queen of Scot was imprisoned).

excellent daily tour! it was so much fun, the villages were absolutely beautiful, you have the chance to see different picturesque of Scotland, and we had enough time to explore those places. Small bus of 16 passengers, and the driver (Graham) was professional, pleasant, and gave many useful and interesting info during the trip.

Thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. We thought 3 hours was a good amount of time to spend in St. Andrew’s. We had time to walk quite awhile on the golf course, as well as exploring the town, having lunch and checking out some shops.

Wonderful tour. Our guide was most excellent and we had a fabulous time at St Andrews and the surrounding countryside. Would recommend.

A great day trip to St Andrews! We were able to see so much and learn so much about the area from our guide Graham

Nice, easy day trip. Plenty of time in St Andrews. Knowledgeable driver/guide.
