Home to the University of St Andrews since 1413, this seaside town on the east Fife coast is an eclectic mix of historic tradition and contemporary intellectualism. Truly, St Andrews has it all, and its ancient streets have been walked upon by students, locals, and golf tourists alike. Read on for the top seven must-dos in the Auld Grey Toon.
The St Andrews Brewing Company, a local craft brewery, is adored by both students and locals for its range of Fife-made ales, stouts and IPAs. The brew pub, located on South Street, is a cozy and welcoming spot for a pint of oatmeal stout or a glass of Thistly Cross Cider. The beer hall upstairs gets lively on weekend evenings, with students sitting around the tables to sip their drinks and chat with friends.
