After our fabulous stay at Fernie Castle, we headed to St Andrews to take in the sights before heading back down to Glasgow.
For someone that’s never visited St Andrews, I was surprised…
I don’t know what I expected exactly but it’s like a mini Cambridge (I’ve not visited Oxford yet).
Apart from the fact that if you walk directly up the main street, you turn a corner and you are staring directly at the ruins of the cathedral.
Now if your a history buff like me you’ll love it here! You can walk around the grounds and find out all about the Cathedral.
Spoiler alert: It was built twice!
After walking through the ruins – which honestly you could spend all day doing, there is so much to see and do – we found ourselves at the harbour.
From here we walked to the end and looked back to see a stunning view of St Andrews.
Unfortunately by the time we got back, we had to make the walk back to the car before our time was up…
But we did have time to get ice cream!
Jannettas Gelateria is well-known, family run, artisan ice-cream shop in St Andrews.
Definitely a stop not to miss!
Once back at the car, we decided to head to Eden Mill Distillery and Brewery.
The Eden Mill story began at St Andrews in 1810, when the legendary Haig distillers first laid down whisky here at the site they now own and work from.
In 2012, they resurrected that proud tradition of crafting.
They’re Scotland’s original single site combined brewery and distillery – the first in Scotland.
As major Gin lovers, we decided to pick up a bottle of their “Love” gin and teo bottles of their pre-mixed “Love” gin cocktails called “Berry Bramble”.
Edin Mill also do tours and tastings so definitely worth doing if you have the time or you could make a day of it.
Unfortunately, for us that was all we had time for. But overall St Andrews is a fantastic day trip is away be and not to be missed!
