Every couple of months we head up to Scotland to visit family and we always pop over to St Andrews, which is only a 15 minute drive from my parents house. I have posted lots of photos from here on my blog, its just such a pretty place no matter what the weather.
Its quite a small town but has something for everyone including a beach, Castle, beautiful restaurants & shops. It is a bustling place, what with it having a University, big golfing community and plenty of tourists. It is a very friendly place to visit. We like to just wander through the cobbled streets, stopping of for numerous coffees along the way and always make sure to walk along the beach, even if its blowing a gale.
I did notice on my last visit that Jo Malone & Bobbi Brown have opened little boutiques there, could be quite dangerous.
If you ever get the opportunity to visit I highly recommend popping over its like being on the set of a Harry Potter film.
