Scotland – North of Edinburgh
Drive over the Forth Road Bridge, opened in 1964 from South Queensferry to the ancient Kingdom of Fife. This bridge saved cars from a long drive to cross the River Forth. Fife’s most famous town is St Andrew’s, known to golfers around the world. Come and see the Old Course, where golf has been played since 1400. There are six 18-hole golf courses and one 9-hole course. The British Golf Museum is just next door to the Royal & Ancient Clubhouse. Visit the ruins of the 13thc castle and 12thc cathedral. More recently St Andrew’s has become known as the place where Prince William met Kate Middleton, when he saw her modelling while studying at the University. Also in Fife is the royal palace of Falkland, built by King James IV and lived in by the Stuart monarchs for 200 years. There are some charming little fishing villages along the south-east Fife coast – Crail, Anstruther with the Scottish Fisheries Museum, Pittenweem and St Monans. Culross preserves a wealth of Scottish vernacular architecture with cobbled streets and crow-stepped gables.
