Enjoy a full fun packed tour visiting both Edinburgh and the fabulous town of St Andrews in the Kingdom of Fife; We start with a tour around the City of Edinburgh and visit Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile.  We then drive out of the City and head North across the Forth Bridges and through the Kingdom of Fife where you can experience the magical charm and beauty of the area.  Our journey takes us through some lovely rich agricultural landscape, along small lanes and roads off the beaten track, where the large tour buses cannot go. Our next stop is the historic village of Falkland where you can stroll around the village and see the 15th Century Palace and country hunting estate of Mary, Queen of Scots.  We then continue onto St Andrews, renowned as the home of golf in the world but also one of the most fascinating travel destinations.  Originally St Andrews was the ecclesiastical centre of Scotland and to present day it is home to our oldest University celebrating 600 years old in 2013.  Once there we'll show you all the main attractions in and around the town, the university and of course, the famous links golf courses. You'll have opportunity to walk around the town, the Old Course on the public footpath and have time for a bite to eat or refreshment at one of the establishments overlooking the famous Old Course etc. After lunch we return via the coastal route through some of the East Neuk fishing villages.  We stop frequently on route to ensure you have good opportunity to absorb the magic.
