From Edinburgh we head to South Queensferry and the Forth Bridges, giving
us the chance to take a photo of arguably the best bridge in the world.
Crossing the River Forth our next stop is the magnificent Dunfermline Abbey,
burial place of St. Margaret and King Robert The Bruce. There will be a
chance to photograph his gold ornate tomb and wonder round the Abbey and
grounds and see the results of the 'reformation' when churches were
destroyed and desecrated supposedly in the name of God..
Passing Carnegie Hall we travel to the Fife coast and the fishing
villages of the 'East Neuk', stopping in Anstruther an old Herring
stronghold. Where you may take the opportunity to try the best fish and
chips in Scotland or have a snack at the Fisheries Museum.
Continuing to St Andrews, home of golf, religion and of course education.
Prince William our future king is currently studying geography here at the
oldest university in Scotland. Roam for 2.5 hours in historic and beautiful
settings, in good weather the beach featured in the movie Chariots of Fire
is particularly popular.
Golfers may want to visit the grave of "Young Tom Morris", the Golf Museum,
the links course putting green or how about walking along Grannie Clark's
Wynd, which crosses the 1st and the 18th of the old course. It is a public
right of way!
