Leaving Scotland

A travel blog entry by grahamandmandi

But those are really the only things I can think of that I will not miss. The upside of the huge change in day-length is the very rapid seasonal changes, (I could explain why, as a beautiful example of Simple Harmonic Motion but will probably save that for my senior Maths class) ...

Not the best introduction to the Fife Coastal Path

A travel blog entry by grahamandmandi


... sigh, lovely smooth grass below, and up above... a big black cloud, now raining cold angry rain on us.

At about this point, maybe it was time to have a closer look at the official Fife Coastal Path website... and discovered that the route back to St Andrews was entirely along the busy road we had travelled on the bus earlier.

Hurrah for the Fife Coastal Path!


Settling in

A travel blog entry by charlenemixa


Our last stop is the "Home of Golf" – St Andrews. With the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship underway several courses in the St Andrews area are unavailable. Staying at the Fairmont St Andrews with ranking of on of the World's 50 Best Golf Hotels by Golf Digest Awards has us in the lap of luxury and playing two awesome and very different golf courses the Kittocks and the Torrance.
