    The Royal and Ancient

    April 23, 2018 in the United Kingdom

    A ride back to the train from the concierge, who has family (a son, grandson, and daughter in law) in western Canada. The plan is to take 3 trains and a bus to St Andrews. It works and we are in St Andrews, where golf was invented. We have lunch on Market Street, where all the college kids are having lunch too. After checking out the town, we mosey over the the Royal and Ancient golf course. There a number of courses to play here, and I must say, they look easy. The fairways are wide, I don’t see any sand traps, and definitely not a tree in sight. It looks flat, so every lie should be a good one. Obviously there is other factors at play that I don’t fully understand.
    This place is old. Before we arrived, I knew it was referred to as ancient, and I thought maybe a bit of an over statement. It is not! Ancient even describes the bus station. Nothing is new except for the cars around town. We both loved the place. Stayed for about 4 hours and continued by train back to Edinburgh.

    Streets of St.Andrews

    April 23, 2018 in the United Kingdom

    The streets in St Andrews are lined with quaint stone buildings, the streets mostly cobblestone as is any old town in Scotland. This definitely adds to the charm...a reminder that high heels would be challenging. It is definitely a university town as the shops and eateries are crowded with students. We both liked St Andrews as it is charming and has a welcoming feel to it.Read more

    St Andrews

    July 20, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Been to see golf course in rain. No photo no visibility. Lovely township even in rain. Spent 30 minutes finding coffee and very tasty walnut and date scone. The houses are built of stone and are what I would have imagined it to be 100s of year ago. Most places have lovely gardens. The old golf course was discussed and apparently the new one is very good too. Had a look for Sharon, Phil, Robyn and Dave.

    Went to Leuchars Airbase. Photos give wet indication of homes. Airbase hosts an airshow. As we head for Perth the crops line the sides of the road. Seedling are just coming up and potatoes are well on their way to cropping.

    Crossed the Tay to get to Dundee. Renown for jam jute and journalism. This city centre was by passed. Wrong side to get photo of new Tay Bridge. The original collapsed. The weather and weight of train caused the collapse and design, weather and train were blamed . Tay is a river often ignored. Floods quite seriously.

    Photo is of by passing Dundee!

    Out of Edinburgh

    July 20, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Well, had written up info and forgot to save. Travelled out along waterfront and now raining Scottish mist! On into Fife? And crossed new bridge. Photo is of old one.

    It is great to have history told as we move along the motorways. The area we are travelling now is great growing area.
    Unfortunately today we can't see it?Read more

    Golf ohne Ende, St. Andrews

    August 17, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    249km gefahren, einmal quer vom Loch Lomond nach St. Andrews.

    Joachim: Landschaftlich ein Traum, schöne Seen (Loch), sanfte Berge (Ben) und schöne Täler (Glen). Nach dem Regen war es heute Wolkig mit immer mehr Sonne zwischendurch. Gestartet bei 13 Grad und dann an der Ostküste 20 Grad.
    Über die 3277m lange Brücke in Dundee gefahren und dann in die Heimatstadt des Golfsports gefahren. Die Golfplätze liegen direkt an die Stadt mit Blick aufs Mehr, grandios!!! Leider darf man nirgendwo mit dem Womo Übernacht stehen, also sind wir jetzt auf einem sehr gepflegten Campingplatz für 24,50£

    Ann: Hier gibt es Berge die voll mit Heide sind, ein Traum in lila und dunkel Rosa. Andere wiederum sind mit einem saftig grünen Wiesen Tuch überzogen, sodass es fast wie grüner Samt aussieht. Hügel an Hügel reihen sich an einander, die Stassen sind kurvig und schmal, und immer wieder zwischen drin ein Loch oder ein Fluss. An Tieren sehen wir die schwarzköpfigen Schottlandschafe, die das ganze Jahr über draussen und somit sehr robust sind. Auch gibt es hier das Galway Rind und das Angus Rind, beide sind beliebt wegen ihrer saftigen Steaks. Übrigens aus den Schafsmägen wird Haggis gemacht eine Spezialität hier oben.

    St. Andrews

    August 26, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 55 °F

    On the way to St. Andrews we took a one-hour break in the lovely little town of Pitlochry. A morning visit to St. Andrews took us by the Ancient and Royal Golf Course, where the game of golf was invented. Next we stopped at the place where George Wishart, a Protestant leader, was killed for his faith in the wars between Catholics and Protestants in Scotland. Our bus quickly passed by the University of St. Andrews, where Prince William, Duke of Cambridge met his wife Kate Middleton. Our guide mentioned that neither was an especially good student, and that this university is more noted as a party school than a serious institution for scholarship. We especially enjoyed seeing young students from the high school being let out for lunch. Almost all of them made their way to a pizza parlor, while we went just a bit farther to get some soup and scones. The ruins of the cathedral are remarkable. This must have been a huge complex when the abbey was active. Even now in its ruined state, the building is impressive.Read more
