From Edinburgh we head to South Queensferry and the Forth Bridges, giving is the chance to take a photo of two of the most remarkable bridge's in the world, the Forth Rail Bridge built in 1890, and it’s much younger neighbour, the Forth Road Bridge.
Crossing the River Forth our first stop is the magnificent Dunfermline Abbey, burial place of King Robert the Bruce. There will be a chance to photograph his gold ornate tomb and wander around the Abbey and grounds and see the results of the ‘reformation’ when churches were destroyed and desecrated, supposedly in the name of God.
Passing Carnegie Hall (Andrew Carnegie, the world famous philanthropist was born here) we travel along the Fife coast and the charming little fishing villages of the ‘East Neuk’, stopping in Anstruther, an old Herring stronghold, where you may take the opportunity to try “the best fish and chips in Scotland” or have a snack at the Fisheries Museum.
We then continue to St Andrews, home of golf, religion and of course St Andrews University. Spend up to 2 ½ hours in historic and beautiful settings – in good weather the beach feature in the movie ‘Chariots of Fire’ is particularly popular, as are the 16th Century tunnels under the Castle.
Golfers may want to visit the grave of Young Tom Morris, the Golf Museum, the Links Course putting green or just walk along Grannie Clark’s Wynd, a public right-of-way, over the 1st and the 18th of the Old Course.
