Example tour:

We pick you up at New haven cruise ship sea port to travel to St.Andrews.
After disembarking the ship your driver will welcome you at the pier with a name sign.

Heading north over the River Forth to the Kingdom of Fife where you can view the Forth Rail Bridge, the second longest cantilever bridge in the world.
We’ll swing around the coastal villages of East Neuk (‘neuk’ is the old Scots word for ‘corner’) calling at:

  • Lower Largo,
    Birthplace of Alexander Selkirk also known as Alexander Selcraig, was a Scottish sailor who spent four years as a castaway after being marooned on an uninhabited island in the South Pacific Ocean. His story aroused great interest at home, and Daniel Defoe’s fictional character Robinson Crusoe was based in part on him.
  • Pittenweem:
    A small and secluded and picturesque fishing village famous for its yearly arts festival
  • Anstruther:
    Was originally founded as a fishing village and is home to the Scottish Fisheries Museum. Its main industry is now tourism. You can enjoy the finest local fish and chips here

Because these villages are so unspoiled, and have been almost bypassed by the 20th century, it will almost feel like you have taken a trip back in time.

When we arrive in St. Andrews we take the time to drive around St.Andrews and show you the main points of interest, you will receive a map of the town and have time to stroll around at your own leisure to explore the this beautiful medieval town
For the Golf enthusiasts we offer a group picture taken on the Swilcan Bridge which spans over the burn of the 18th hole of the Old Course.

On our way back south we can depending on the time available visit Falkland Palace (Once home of Mary Queen of Scots and the royal hunting lodge of the Stewart Dynasty, lovingly restored in the 1890’s by the Marquis of Bute) and its setting in the lovely town of Falkland.

Whether your main interest is in history, golf, St Andrews University, or simply shopping, St Andrews has so much to offer the visitor.
You can visit the ruined cathedral and castle, and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the town, which is home to Scotland’s oldest university. If you are a golfer, you will want to see the world-famous Old Course, where the British Open Championship is held every five years, as well as the ‘Royal & Ancient’ clubhouse and the British Golf Museum.
There is the opportunity to visit Kingsbarns distillery which is located 20min south of St Andrews

We bring you back well in time to set sail on the next tide to proceed your dream cruise.

Please get in touch and we will do what we can to give you that unforgettable day tour in Scotland.
