What to expect

Have you ever wanted to visit the famous Scottish wilderness? Are you fascinated by the mystical folklore, the charming fishing villages, the wild scenery and the fascinating history that’s been the pride of Scotland for centuries? This one day tour from Edinburgh takes you to some of the most beautiful sites of the Scottish eastern coast, such as Loch Leven and the ancient village of St. Andrews Visiting Scotland’s home of golf and the fishing villages of the Ancient Kingdom of Fife, you will have the opportunity to enjoy some additional options such as St. Andrews Castle and Cathedral.

Here’s how your full day tour is going to happen. On a brisk morning, get on a comfortable luxury coach in Edinburgh and head east crossing the iconic Forth Bridge, into the ancient “Kingdom of Fife”. You’ll stop for a few minutes to be able to take some great pictures at Aberdour before continuing into the East Neuk of Fife.

You will then make a stop in the town of Anstruther, home of the Scottish Fisheries Museum, before moving on to the villages of Pittenweem, Crail and St. Monans, once thriving fishing centres which were made prosperous by trade within the continent.

Finally, you will reach the gorgeous medieval town of St. Andrews in time for lunch. There you will enjoy a walk around town, where Prince William met Kate, home to the oldest university in Scotland, famous Cathedral and golf course. Enjoy approximately three hours of free time to explore its medieval buildings and wonderful cobbled streets in the centre, and have lunch and refreshments.

Heading homewards you will travel across the Lomond hills, descending to Loch Leven (scene of Mary Queen of Scot's imprisonment and escape) and on to the picturesque village of South Queensferry where you will enjoy your final stop before returning to Edinburgh.
