The ancient town of St Andrews is one of the most famous in Britain and home of Scotland’s oldest, and the world's fifth oldest, University which was founded in 1411. Other historic places of interest are the magnificent ruins of the Cathedral and Castle. These are open to visitors and command a spectacular view over two beaches and seafront.
St Andrews is the home of golf and hosts the Royal and Ancient Golf Club and the prestigious Old Course. The apartment is a mere two minute walk to the first tee on the Old Course and the world famous collection of six Links Courses. In addition, there are over twenty well known golf courses within a twenty minute drive.
The Old Course and Fairmont Hotels provide nearby fine dining experiences and spa treatments, and St Andrews itself has a myriad of restaurants and shops.
Entertainment is provided in many of the local bars in addition to the Byre Theatre and local cinema.
Other activities available include tennis, walking (beaches and forests), sailing and fishing.
