We went and saw St Andrews cathedral and I have to say that if you are in Edinburgh you MUST take the time to see this cathedral. For anyone like me it hits the trifecta: 1)Architecture 2)Ruins 3)Old cemetery. As soon as I turned the corner and saw it all I could say was "Yes. Yes." It is beautiful, pure and simple. And when you stop to think about what it must have looked like before it fell to ruin, it's a bit overwhelming. Plus, because it is right next to the sea, there are seagulls all around, which create an eerie and deserted atmosphere that makes the experience perfect.
We only spent about 3 hours there, but since it is such a small town, we pretty much saw everything. We even got to see the tree that Queen Mary planted way back when. It still stands in the courtyard of the college named for her. So, if you have a few hours, head up north, it is well worth the trip.
I'd imagine the golf is good too.
