St Andrews



St Andrews (Scottish Gaelic: Cill Rmhinn) is a city and former royal burgh on the east coast of Fife, Scotland. It is named after Saint Andrew the Apostle. It has a population of about 18 000, and stands on the North Sea coast between Edinburgh and Dundee. It is home to Scotland's oldest university, the University of St Andrews.

From mediaeval times until the Reformation, St Andrews was the ecclesiastical capital of Scotland: its bishop being the primus of the Scottish church. Today, its historic cathedral which was the largest in Scotland, lies in ruins. The impressive ruins situated on the outskirt of the town gives a vivid impression of the scale and power held by the church in bygone years.

St Andrews is also the Home of Golf, where the game evolved and where the spirit and traditions of golf have been safeguarded for over six centuries.
