    Whether you are religious or not, this monument to martyrs who were executed for following the Protestant religion provides a very good insight into this important aspect of Scotland’s history. And although I knew all about the Covenanters and their cause from my history lessons as a wee boy at school, I didn’t realise that St Andrews had played such a prominent role.

    In the beautiful surroundings of Southern Scotland this artistic monument is absolutely amazing. Bought food and drink off one of the food vans too. So friendly and the food was good too.

    This is a fountain ⛲️ in memorial to George John Whyte-Melville, who was a 19th century soldier, novelist and poet. It was commissioned by his mother, Lady Catherine Melville , in 1880, after he was killed in a riding accident.
    It’s 14 ft high, made of Dalbeattie granite and red Dumfriesshire ashlar , and has 2 decorated quatrefoil water- basins , from which 3 water fountains originally cascaded. Sadly, due to the corrosion of internal pipes , it’s not been operative as a fountain since the 1930s. Perhaps because of its situation in the middle of a busy road there’s not much can be done with it - which is a pity, because I’m sure if it was cleaned and sympathetically restored it could be a very attractive Victorian monument.

    This is the grounds of I think St Mary's College of St. Andrews University. The Quad retains much of the 16th century buildings, including the historic King James Library founded by King James VI.

    The common area is a pretty grassy area with benches and walkways typical of ancient universities in the UK. The area is a lovely place to eat or study, but being a Glasgow grad, I'd have to say this quad is no match for the Glasgow University quadrangle :-)
