St Andrews, Scotland

St. Andrews is the home to the oldest university in Scotland. It is Scotland’s oldest university, which was founded in 1413. It is one of the most prestigious universities in the United Kingdom and is also the home university of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

St Andrews’ Cathedral

St Andrews is about 50 miles northeast of Edinburgh and 15 miles southeast of Dundee. I personally think that St Andrews looks like a miniature of Edinburgh which are similar in terms of historical values, with a plus point of being located right next to the sea.

The emo kitty in the city center

The St Andrews city center is a small historical town, which is easily accessible by foot. The tourist information center is right in the middle of the city center. It is only a short walk away from the city center to the seaside and the ruins of the St Andrews Castle, which faces directly to the North Sea. Behind St Andrews’ Castle, stands St Andrews’ Cathedral.

St Andrews’ Castle

Walking along the coastline towards the pier, offers a pleasant view of the sea and the pier. While walking on the pier, extra care needs to be taken as the waves are really strong. The weather at St Andrews can be very cold and chilly due to the strong winds from the North Sea.

On the 1st of May every year, students jump into the sea from the Castle Sands beach during daybreak as part of the ancient university tradition, which is known as the May Dip. The beach is the smallest of the St Andrews’ three beaches, located right below the castle.
