5 Things To Do in & Around St Andrews

St Andrews, the “home of golf” is known worldwide and is on the must-visit list for many golfers from overseas. After a round of golf on The Old Course or indeed any of the other golf courses in and around St Andrews, Carnoustie, Crail or Kingsbarns – what else is there to do?

St Andrews West Sands

Famous for the opening scenes of the film Chariots of Fire, West Sands is almost 2 miles of sandy beach. Voted “Scotland’s Beach Award” for 29 consecutive years. Take a walk along the beach and head to the Eden Estuary Nature Reserve, home to birds and seals and a few kite surfers!

Absolutely the best! Everyone at ProScot (John, Nicola, Patricia) were exceptionally professional, friendly, and helpful.

The tour they put together for us was incredible. Our accommodations in St Andrews we’re top notch. The golf courses were fabulous. Drivers were always on time!

They made sure we had everything we needed from snacks to drinks and were willing to be flexible in terms of schedule

They setup dinner reservations at amazing restaurants, and were able to provide advice on just about anything in the area.
