    Fantastic small distillery allowing to get up close to the process. Early years of aging and production, will be fun to visit annually and follow progression. Easy trip from St Andrews.

    We took a day trip to St. Andrews and had a quick pop in to see the most famous Bridge in golf. I have seen it on TV but standing on the bridge in person was awesome.

    Plenty of time to walk around the town and visit the greens for a little putting. We loved trying to search out all the charity Scotties as well.

    St Andrews West Sands Beach is a very beautiful beach, a great place for a relaxing long walk by the sea. I will definitely go there again when in St Andrews.

    What a treat we enjoyed on our 'personal' Darney's Gin tour. Jenny was our marvellous guide who was such a font of knowledge and clearly loved her job. It was an informative and interesting tour, the set up of which has clearly been planned to ensure maximum engagement and enjoyment. We would thoroughly recommend a visit here if you are in the area.

    we went there after we had been to Fife Zoo (the zoo took all of 1/2 an hour to round and was not worth going to £8.50 for an adult) . The Park is lovely and there is loads to do with free entry and free parking. We purchased a wrist band for £10 and this gives you unlimited use to all the attractions on the park (well worth the money), There are plenty of benches for using for picnics etc. We will definitely be back

    We took part in the Halloween Virtual Gin Tasting Saturday 31st October. Adam was our host. He was engaging, funny and had a great knowledge of the subject.

    The presentation of the gins was excellent and the tasting did not disappoint. This is an excellent purchase for any gin lover and made for a fun night in.

    This is probably the best virtual gin tasting there is. Can’t recommend this enough.

    Went to this lovely place to see the snowdrops in bloom. They have over 200 varieties and everything is well labelled and well laid out. It’s such a tranquil place with plenty of opportunities to sit and relax or eat a picnic lunch. We opted to eat in their café. This was very busy but our order was taken quickly and arrived equally speedily. It was delicious! We both had a toasted sandwich which came with a ‘cup’ of homemade soup. The ‘cup’ was actually a small bowl. Brilliant value for £10.95 each.

    Excellent displays and information showing the development of the game overall and in St. Andrews. The book selection in the gift shop seemed very limited considering the depth of golf literature opportunities.

    This 2 mile long sandy beach is bordered with grassy dunes sprinkled with wildflowers, and fringed with intriguing rock formations - some of which are the remnants of a lush forest that grew here in the late Carboniferous period 310 million years ago. If you know what you’re looking for , plant and insect fossils and tracks can be found here, some in situ. It’s a designated Blue Flag bathing area, and the water is amazingly translucent in places. There’s a spacious ticketed car-park, public toilets and a snack shack, plus as it’s part of the Fife Coastal Path , you can stretch your legs for as long or short as you like.
