... ruins Yet graves were marked quite late As far from seventeen hundreds Through to twenty zero eight Along a short walk further Was the castle like formation A story book of history's plot The tale of reformation A bottle dungeon prison Was cut through solid rocks A dank and airless hole in ground Where once was kept John Knox There were sieging tunnels underground Outsiders hacking ...

Leaving Scotland

A travel blog entry by grahamandmandi

... and even more of a pain, having layered it all on, to find oneself trying to get home from the supermarket with 8 kg of groceries and a heavy jumper and a raincoat and a woolly hat over your arm because the sun has come out.

What we would find extremely difficult about living in these high latitudes would be the light - or lack thereof! The light of high summer made it difficult for us to sleep, and would be impossible if you were trying to do a job and ...

Not the best introduction to the Fife Coastal Path

... by busses than riding in one) all the way to the next village of Guardbridge. So why didn't we just get off the bus at Guardbridge, we wonder? Just one sign for the Fife Coastal Track, at the entrance of the village, telling us to cross the road and walk down the cycle track, 2m from the busy road and even further from the actual coast. So we do that, for half a km or so, and then we realise that the hedge we have been walking along, separates us from what would have been ...

Settling in

Graham went off for his first day at work looking like a little boy in a too-large uniform, starting Big School. I had wanted to accompany him but has to babysit the washing machine which can't be left alone. I had started the load of washing on the standard wash programme and it washed, and washed, and washed. I had begun to think I was going to spend the rest of my life listening to it chugging away but it did eventually finish and I was able to hang the washing out and ...

Edinburgh at last. Breifly.

... a place that doesnt want me there. Its like stalking a movie star. So we are busy now looking at options. None of which sound good. I wish i could have finished the blog on a brighter note. Thanks to all who have tagged along on the trip reading the blog. I really apreciated the support and the comments. I have enjoyed it despite some trying times. I might write some stuff about living in scotland but I doubt there is going to be much of interest ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Du Vin St. Andrews

    Nice public areas but room overpriced

    from

    Spent a very pleasant night at this hotel.

    Enjoyed the restaurant. Service both there and at the front desk was very friendly.

    Hotel has been refurbished and they've done a great job with the public areas.

    Rooms are fine but not worth 200 a night, in my view. Not really in the same class as the Fairmont St Andrews Bay.

    Lino in the bathroom, for example - and that lino smell - doesn't make you feel like you're at an upmarket hotel.

    Then again, I got the last room in the hotel so maybe the others are better.

    Pearl of Scotland

    from

    If you don't know what to do for your next holidays, my husband and I would suggest you go and stay at St Andrews Golf Hotel. No better place for discovering or rediscovering Scotland than staying a few days in one of their charming suites overviewing the famous St Andrews Bay. Upon arrival, we've been welcome with 1/2 bottle of champagne and a chocolate box along with a personal note of the Managing Director; This already made us feel very special I must admit and from that moment, everyone at the hotel literally pampered us like if we were family, until we left.

    Everyone is very special

    from

    We have stayed at this hotel for many years. There is something quite special about it - ethos perhaps? Pride in how the staff present themselves? Certainly a clear sense of teamwork and knowing each other's job specialities is easy to see.

    Golfing Break

    from

    Promised someone gorgeous I'd write this, though don't normally bother. - Returned home today after a very entertaining stay here. Great location, right beside all the courses and got its own pub below. Caters specifically for golfing groups - we were 8 guys, well behaved and quiet ofcourse. Superb food and great service. Well appointed rooms and internet access too which is a bonus not normally

    found in small luxury hotels like this. Nice mix of other guests and staff too, not too stuffy and willing to help with everything from shoe laces to karaoke! Will definitely be back. Could do with some form of car parking attendant and a cloakroom but if that's all that's missing then still rate it in amongst the top hotels I've stayed in recently.

    Fabulous St Andrews

    from

    My husband and I spent the week at the St Andrews Golf Hotel, located down the street from the 18th green/fairway of the Old Course at St Andrews with a view of St Andrews Bay. The hotel has 22 rooms with modernized baths, a lovely gourmet restaurant, stylish bar and lovely outdoor garden seating. The service is A-One!! Very friendly and helpful staff that contributed greatly to make our vacation extremely enjoyable. The added "turn-down" service is a plus - chamber maid delivers homemade cookies to your room in the evening. We visited Scotland for the golf experience and was pleased to find we were so close to the courses. Across the street is a lovely park leading down to the British Golf Museum and the Aquarium. The one drawback is there is limited parking if you have a car. I can't say more about the accommodations or the staff. They make you feel like family and we really didn't want to leave. Contact the hotel to find out their package deals. The food is excellent!!
