The stunning medieval city of St Andrews is well known these days for its famous golf course (the world's oldest) and Scotland's first and finest university, recently made famous by its royal alumni. Set on the stunning north coast of the Kingdom of Fife, St Andrews is just one hour away from Edinburgh. On this St Andrews day trip from Edinburgh, we'll join a local historian and take a walk through the historic core of the town, visit the university, and explore the intricate links between the history of golf and the history of the town.

Born in Edinburgh, brought up in Edinburgh, Edinburgh through and through, David’s studies at university for an honours degree included Scottish, British and European history. He has a lifelong familiarity with the history and architecture of his native city but still constantly wonders at its ability to change. Before learning how to explain and interpret the history and culture of his native land by training to become a professionally qualified Scottish Tourist Guide, he practised Scots law. His interests lie mainly in history, law - and perhaps the odd whisky! Nowadays he combines passing on knowledge through guiding across Edinburgh (and Scotland generally) with passing on knowledge through teaching trainee lawyers and trainee tourist guides.
