Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy a charming day tour of St Andrews and the Villages of Fife, with up to 3 hours free time exploring the medieval town of St Andrews. Follow the Scottish coastline on a luxury coach and discover quaint fishing villages in the Kingdom of Fife.
We begin our coach tour from Edinburgh by stopping off at South Queensferry for stunning views and photo opportunities of the exemplary Forth Rail Bridge before we cross the Firth of Forth and head into the ‘Kingdom of Fife’. We travel through the ancient fishing and mining villages of Fife such as St. Monans and Pittenween, before stopping at Anstruther for a short break off the coach. We continue on from here to the village of Crail where you can still see the massive impact that fishing has on the communities in the area.Here we make our way to St. Andrews for around lunch time where the day is very much your own. You have approximately 3 hours to explore this beautiful medieval town which is commonly known as the ‘home of golf’. You may explore the ‘old course’, visit the ruins of the Castle and Cathedral, walk along the harbour or even take a wee visit to the beach. You will have time for lunch, possibly at one of the locations that Prince William courted his wife, Kate Middleton, before taking in the wealth of activity that Scotland’s largest University brings to this small town.As we make our return to Edinburgh, you travel through the Lomond Hills and pass by Loch Leven, where Mary Queen of Scots’ was imprisoned. Once again we cross the Firth of Forth before returning to your departure point where your 8 hour tour ends.
