st andrews, scotland

I was submitting answers to questions Lisette sent over for her blog sponsor spotlight at the end of last week, and I got stumped. One of the questions asked why people would enjoy reading my blog and what makes it unique. I couldn’t think of anything because sometimes I honestly don’t think I’m that unique (I mean, look at all of the awesome travel and lifestyle blogs floating around the Internet) so I put, “because my readers will never know where I am.” You know, because we move so often. But I quickly realized that that answer was slightly really creepy and it made me laugh. Anyway, this is what you’re getting yourself into if you read my blog. You’ll never find meeeee.

And now for St Andrews!

Whenever we had family members visit us in Scotland, we took them to St Andrews for a little weekend exploring. Because my dad, brother and father-in-law are avid golfers, they wanted to walk on the Old Course. We also found St Andrews Cathedral and St Andrews Castle, which are located only minutes away from the course. Both are situated on the coast with beautiful views of the North Sea.

We skipped golfing on the course because we didn’t plan on spending much time in St Andrews and failed to make reservations ahead of time. However, if you would like to golf and know the specific dates you’ll be staying in Scotland, check out the golf website for tee time availability and tickets to different events and tournaments. And don’t miss the great golf shop inside the Old Course Hotel. All of the men in my family bought golf towels, hats and windbreakers. What a perfect way to remember your time at the course!

Have you ever been?

    I love exploring castles. There is something so magical about them.
    I think moving all the time is fantastic. You always get to start over and recreate yourself if you want to.

    Graduating St Andrews student here :) It’s so nice to see St Andrews featured on your website as it really is breathtakingly beautiful. Did you visit the other cute towns in Fife like Crail and Anstruther? They’re so cute.
