This morning I collected my guests from Letterfarm B&B, Dunkeld from where we proceeded with a tour as follows:

  • First stop Meikleour where we visited and photographed the tallest hedge in the world.

  • Fascinating collection of Pictish era carved stone at Meigle. These date from about the 9th century and include a Viking era ‘Hogback’ grave marker.

  • St. Andrews, our principal destination of the day. Here we visited the famous Old Course (which is being prepared for the British Open next month), the University district and the Cathedral. A few of the group climbed St. Rules Tower and obtained some some spectacular views and photo images of St Andrews and surrounding district.

Here is a video clip panorama of St Andrews taken from atop St. Rule’s Tower which is part of the Cathedral site.

  • Quaint and interesting fishing villages of Crail, Anstruther and Pittenweem. We also drove along to Lower Largo to see the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk, real world model for Robinson Crusoe.

After a good day’s tour we headed back to our base at Dunkeld and quick swing to see the Hilton Hotel, a former private mansion.

Weather was very clement, with sunshine and blue sky for most of the day.
