Departing from your hotel we will pass Loch Leven Castle, famous for the imprisonment of Mary Queen of Scots, towards our first stop of the day, the pretty little village of Falkland which is nestled at the foot of East Lomond hill. 

Falkland is home to Falkland Palace – once the Hunting Lodge of Scotland’s royalty including James IV and Mary Queen of Scots.  In more recent times Falkland has been the setting of ‘old Inverness’ for the TV series Outlander, based on the novels of the American author Diana Gabaldon. You will have the opportunity to tour the palace and its gardens and explore the village.

Leaving Falkland behind we will drive through one of the most fertile parts of Fife passing crops of wheat, barley, oats, fruit and vegetables on our way to St Andrews – famous for its Cathedral, Castle, Scotland’s oldest University and the Home of Golf.

Here you will discover the turbulent history of the Castle and the Cathedral, explore the University grounds, before visiting the famous ‘Old Course’. Your guide will give you a short tour of the 1st, 17th, 18th hole and the Swilken Bridge. You will have some free time to walk around St Andrews before we continue with our tour.

Our next stop is the fishing villages of East Neuk. This area is renowned for its pretty red pan-tiled cottages and winding streets leading to the seashore. In the summer months you will have the opportunity to sample fresh crab or lobster from the local shack. We will continue to make our way down the coast, with options to tour a whisky or gin distillery, a cheese farm home to ‘Anster’ – a delicious locally made cheese or a local smokehouse to taste their smoked venison or salmon, before heading back towards the Iconic Forth Bridge and your hotel.

Can I play a round of golf on the Old Course?

Single golfers with suitable handicaps who wish to play the Old Course without an existing tee time should check in at the Old Pavillion on the day of play and the staff will do their best to join them with a two or three ball group.

Alternatively you can enter the Old Course Ballot, it is drawn 48 hours in advance of play.  Further details can be found at www.
