The Peat Inn

St Andrews

A very warm welcome to St Andrews, possibly the world’s leading and most famous golfing destination. But there’s a lot more to St Andrews than golf. It is also one of Scotland's friendliest and most delightful historic towns, set in a superb coastal location brimming with miles of golden sands, yet so convenient for Edinburgh, Dundee and indeed all Scottish major towns and cities. Architecturally very interesting, with feature gardens, a real historic feel, and a ‘must visit’ castle and cathedral.

Not surprisingly, there are many putting greens in different parts of the town, and abundant facilities for tennis, lawn bowling, swimming and boating. Indeed it is to be doubted whether there is in Britain a stretch of beach to equal the magnificent two-mile stretch at the West Sands. Almost equally appealing are the East Sands and Kinkell Braes, a stretch of rocky foreshore much enjoyed by young and old alike.

Add our proximity to exciting and vibrant Dundee, unspoilt Angus and its wonderful glens, with idyllic Perthshire, 'All of Scotland' only a stone throw away and you'll really appreciate the choice and diversity, whether outdoor activity enthusiast or sightseer.

Take in the picturesque harbours of the East Neuk fishing villages, the rolling landscapes and stunning seascapes; explore a wealth of historical buildings, an abundance of wildlife and some beautiful walking and cycling routes. The clear air of the sea never far away. Only a bridge away, whether from Dundee or Edinburgh, via one of two of Scotland's most famous monuments, the Tay and the Forth bridges. Or a short gentle drive from Perth.

A wonderful destination for superb short and weekend leisure breaks in Scotland, as well as a home from home, for an extended Scottish vacation.
