Description

It's a hole lot of fun on this tour through the home of golf in Fife. Explore St Andrews' historic old town, putt a little history into your day at the British Golf Museum, and enjoy a very British afternoon tea overlooking the famous Old Course.

Stand under the imposing Forth Bridge and learn its history. This great Scottish man-made landmark opened in 1890, and its construction was no easy feat. Soak up amazing views over the Firth of Forth and see the slightly newer Queensferry Crossing, built to carry the M90 motorway.

Fans of TV's Outlander might recognize Falkland, which was used as a filming location for the show. Continue imagining yourself in 17th century Scotland on an optional guided walking tour around St Andrews, your destination for the afternoon.

Or explore the area for yourself, and check out Scotland's oldest university, walk along beautiful beaches, and take a selfie or two by the ruins of the famous castle and cathedral.

Afternoon tea includes some proper British sarnies (sandwiches) and hospitality at the British Golf Museum. You'll get panoramic views of the Old Course while you eat, before travelling back through the Kingdom of Fife to Edinburgh.

It's an experience par excellence.

Insider tip

If history had gone differently, we may never have been able to enjoy this tour. Several Scottish kings, starting with King James II in 1457, banned the game of golf as it was believed to be a frivolous distraction from useful military skills such as archery practice. Luckily this ban was lifted several decades later by King James IV - reportedly a keen golfer himself.
