St Andrews Tour

Your Fife Journey

Our private St Andrews Tour is an opportunity to explore Scotland and the world-famous University town with a private Scottish tour guide and transport. 

The coastal region of Fife is peppered with old fishing villages. The village of Anstruther is a wonderfully quaint traditional village and, because of this, is ideal for a stroll and coffee. St Andrews Cathedral was once one of Scotland’s most magnificent buildings, making it an imposing landmark. St Andrews Old Town boasts over 1000 years of history in the beautiful University town. As a result, exploring the cobbled streets and enjoying the cafes, restaurants and historical sites is fantastic. 

The ‘Old Course’ in the heart of St Andrews is recognised worldwide as the ‘ Home of Golf ‘ Once banned in the 15th-century, golf is still the heartbeat of St Andrews. Visiting the Golf Museum and seeing first hand the famous 18th hole is a must. 

Our St Andrews day tour from Edinburgh has something for everyone.  The historic village of Falkland, close to St Andrew’s, is no exception. Outlander fans will recognise the quaint village of Falkland having been used in the TV series as a filming location. As a result, Falkland attracts fans of Jamie and Claire from all over the world. A serene setting and a lovely stop – See our Outlander Day Tour.

The Forth Rail Bridge is an incredible engineering feat. A gorgeous location for photos and coffee. The UNESCO recognised world heritage site is beautiful and, as such, an ideal stop when visiting St Andrews from Edinburgh.

It’s been my dream to visit Scotland, and Niall McOwan of Scottish Guided Tours made this the trip of my lifetime. He took wonderful care of us for five days; he created so many wonderful experiences for us - I’ll never forget it - we took his Outlander Tour - as a Scot, he is a wealth of Scots history, plus - he knows Outlander the show. We missed him terribly when it was over. Ten stars!

Eddie, our most professional, congenial guide, was excellent. Our four days with him were seamless. He filled us with the zest of the Inverness/Isle of Skye area and people. My only regret was not having him with us for our entire trip. Thank you, Eddie and Scotland Guided Tours.

Our tour of the Highlands and Islands would not have been the same without Niall. He took such great care of us, planned a truly amazing tour and handled all of the logistical details. While discussing the itinerary, we started with the tour offered, and he helped us customize our five-day trip so we could experience exactly what we hoped. Additionally, we enjoyed our overnight accommodations based on Niall's excellent recommendations...
