St Andrews is a beautiful town on the east coast of Fife in Scotland.
Relics of St Andrew brought there in 732AD and this attracted pilgrims from far and wide and became an important ecclesiastical centre. There are many ruined buildings in the town. The most imposing of which are the ruins of St Rule's tower (probably built around 1130)which overlook the bay and the remains of St Andrews Cathedral and the graveyard associated with it.
Its university, founded in 1410 was the first in Scotland and of course was where Prince William and Kate met. ITV (British TV station) have a good site giving lots of information about the forthcoming royal wedding.
St Andrews is also very well known to golfers.
There are some great little shops, and of course, being a university town, lots of fantastic bars and restaurants.
St Andrews will always be a special place for me because it is where my own son and daughter in law met and fell in love while they were students at the university.
