1 Day Tour Edinburgh
Overview

Enjoy a charming one day tour from Edinburgh at a relaxed pace, with plenty of free time to explore Scotland's home of golf, the ancient town of St. Andrews and the fishing villages of the "Kingdom of Fife".

Itinerary

We leave Edinburgh, crossing the iconic Forth Bridge, into the ancient "Kingdom of Fife". We enjoy a photo stop at Aberdour before continuing into the East Neuk of Fife. We stop in the town of Anstruther, home of the Scottish Fisheries Museum, then we travel through the villages of Pittenweem, Crail and St. Monans, once thriving fishing centres which were made prosperous by trade within the continent. We arrive in the beautiful medieval town of St. Andrews in time for lunch. Here you can enjoy a walk around the town, where Prince William met Kate, home to the oldest university in Scotland, famous Cathedral and golf course. Enjoy approximately three hours of free time to explore its medieval buildings and wonderful cobbled streets in the centre, and have lunch and refreshments. Heading homewards we travel across the Lomond hills, descending to Loch Leven (scene of Mary Queen of Scot's imprisonment and escape) and on to the picturesque village of South Queensferry where we enjoy our final stop before returning to Edinburgh.
