12 Hours in St Andrews, Tappit Hoose's Ultimate Guide
Where to park
Free parking can be found in a large car park at the Petheram Bridge roundabout, on the A91 as you come into St Andrews from the west by the university buildings. You can park here for free all day and you are a quick 5 minute walk into the centre of town.
Alternatively you can park at the famous West Sands Beach and relive your own Chariots of Fire moment.
On the beach aside from your sandcastle palace building and digging to Australia there is surfing, kite surfing and land yachting. Or a leisurly stroll with your four legged friend.
There is plenty of retail therepy on offer in St Andrews with a good mix of independent and luxury brands to choose from.
No visit to St Andrews would be complete without a visit to the British Golf Museum .
The museum is a golf lovers paradise and has a stunning cafe with spectacular views back over the beach.
The Museum of the University of St Andrews (MUSA) is a modern, stylish and interactive museum celebrating the 600 year anniversary of the museum.
The Edenmill Distillery and Brewery, book yourself into a tour at Fife's famous gin distillery, need I say more!
All this should have worked up quite an appetite so now all you have to do is decide what to eat! There are a wealth of dining options in St Andrews from fine dining to communal fodder!
Here are some of our favourites:
-The Balgove Steak Barn, a fantastic quirky steak house serving locally reared steak all cooked on their open fire BBQ, a carnivore's paradise.
-Forgans, hidden away on the main drag on Market Street this releative newcomer marries industrial chic with good service, excellent local produce and an epic gin collection, what's not to like!
-The Seafood Restaurant, arguably the most stunning location for an eatery, pearched ontop of the rocks looking out across West Sands Beach and a mere 100 yards from the 18 green of St Andrews Golf Course, location doesn't get much better than this. Luckily the food more than lives up to the surroundings.
Now all that remains to do is enjoy!
