About This Deal

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: South Queensferry, Edinburgh Scotland

The Forth Bridge is a cantilever railway bridge across the Firth of Forth in the east of Scotland. It is considered as a symbol of Scotland, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Dunfermline Abbey and Palace, St. Margaret Street, Dunfermline KY12 7PE Scotland

Some of Scotland’s greatest medieval monarchs were laid to rest at Dunfermline Abbey. Founded as a priory, Dunfermline was made an abbey by David I and later became a royal mausoleum.
Following the Protestant Reformation of 1560, Queen Anna of Denmark created an imposing palace with the monastic guesthouse at its heart. Charles I was delivered here in 1600 – the last monarch to be born in Scotland.
What to see and do
• Stand in awe of the hugely impressive nave, its Romanesque architecture strikingly similar to that of Durham Cathedral
• Marvel at the monks’ refectory, a towering structure that spoke volumes about Robert I’s confidence in his kingdom
• Admire the breathtaking views across the glen from the palace windows


Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: St Andrews Cathedral, St. Andrews Cathedral The Pends, St. Andrews KY16 9QL Scotland

Explore the remains of Scotland’s largest and most magnificent medieval church. Even in its ruinous state, the cathedral remains a prominent landmark highly visible from the sea.

What to see and do
• Find out how the cathedral dominated Scottish religion until 1560, as headquarters of the medieval Scottish Church
• Marvel at its scale – the cathedral was the seat of Scotland’s leading bishops (and, from 1472, archbishops)
• Learn about the site used for worship since at least the 700s, when St Andrew’s relics are said to have been brought here
• Get up close to Scotland’s most complete and imposing enclosure walls, encircling the cathedral precinct
• View early and later medieval sculpture and other relics found on the site in the cathedral museum
• Climb to the top of the 33m tall St Rule’s Tower for spectacular views across St Andrews and Fife



Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: St Andrews Castle, St. Andrews Castle The Scores, St. Andrews KY16 9AR Scotland

Explore a castle caught in the Protestant Reformation struggle for hearts and minds. St Andrews Castle was a bishop’s palace, a fortress and a state prison during its 450-year history.
What to see and do
• Descend into the castle’s unique underground mine and countermine to get a sense of medieval siege warfare
• Peer into the bottle dungeon – one of medieval Britain’s most infamous castle prisons
• Marvel at the Hamilton Façade, an impressive frontage that reflects the wealth and taste of its builder


Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: University of St Andrews, St. Andrews KY16 9AJ Scotland
