Sr Andrews Cathedral was begun around AD 1160 and grew to become the pre-eminent church in Scotland.It was originally home to a community of Augustinian canons who had outgrown the facilities at St Rule’s Church. The site extends to 30 acres contained within a substantial medieval wall which remains largely intact today. The completed cathedral was consecrated in 1318. The site fell into decline after the Reformation in 1560.

Today, we departed Dunkeld in central Scotland visited Abernethy, St Andrews, Crail, Anstruther, St Monans and Lower Largo with final destination of Edinburgh.
