    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.

    Wasn’t able to book a round (the wait is a month out at least) but to just walk the course and see where it all started is really something. You can always find someone who’s hit it off the course while you’re there. So always be kind and cheer them on! You know you’ve been there!

    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.

    Had an amazing day. Very well kept park and kept us entertained all day.
    Big shoutout to Josh and his colleague (so sorry we’re having a mind blank and can’t remember the name) who operate the train. They made my boy feel so special and let him do so many things including collecting tickets and giving safety instructions to passengers. They were so patient and kind and didn’t even get fed up 10 train rides later. Both of them are an absolute asset to the park and I hope their boss gives them the recognition they deserve!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    St Andrews Aquarium is a lovely day out for the kiddos. My wee 2½ yr old had a fab time looking at all the species of aquatic creatures. All the tanks were clean and well kept. All the animals looked healthy and happy. My only critique in regards to enclosures, would be for the large snapping turtle - his tank looked too small for his size and I did feel a bit sad for him. If he got moved to a bigger enclosure it would definitely leave people with a much more positive reaction when observing him.
    As for the variety, there is a wonderful selection of different animals/fish to see. We were surprised to see monkeys, penguins, meerkats and other reptiles at the aquarium (I absolutely demand everyone MUST see the little marmoset monkeys in their cute hanging baskets - I died of cuteness!!)
    The aquarium itself was very clean and tidy, nicely decorated and with atmospheric music playing to add to the experience. My daughter especially loved the dinosaur fossils etched on the walls! We also enjoyed attending the talks for the sharks and the meerkats - the staff members were full of knowledge and very insightful. The gift shop was great as well, full of toys, games, crystals, plushies and sweets, ideal for kids. We were a little bit disappointed about the cafe - the waitress told us they only do take away despite them having tables and chairs outdoors and a table inside. After walking around the aquarium it would have been nice to get a seat and enjoy some coffee and cakes without rushing to leave.
    As a whole, we definitely enjoyed our day out. It took us roughly half an hour to see the whole aquarium, which for a whole day out did seem a bit short considering the price point as well. I do think the aquarium needs a few tweaks here and there. Maybe add some more activities for kids such as an educational room, a photo booth or some kind of sensory experience to add to the duration of the visit, but other than that we had a lovely day and you can't beat the view of St Andrews coast line just at the aquariums door step! We'll make another visit again in the future for sure.

    Did the clay shooting and archery experience with a friend. The centre is excellent and very professionally run. All the staff were really welcoming and accommodating. Even got a coffee on arrival. Our instructor was Charlie Lush, who was fantastic - full of wonderful stories! His instruction was perfect. Clearly knows his stuff with both bow and gun. He quickly recognised where you were going wrong and explained very clearly how to remedy the problem. I would highly recommend it for a fun afternoon out! Hope to return soon.

    Great fun way to spend a sunny afternoon, started off as a bit of fun but got very competitive by the end 😂, located right next to the beach and golf course.

    A fishing harbour is mentioned here as early as 1222 - so there’s a long maritime history connected to this area. In medieval times this influential port traded mainly with the Low countries, and may have berthed up to 300 vessels. Much of the harbour was rebuilt in the 18th century, and the pier that extends into the North Sea is some 880 ft long, with the walkway being up to 12 ft wide. ( This is where the students of the University of St. Andrews take part in the traditional St. Andrews Pier Walk.)
    Definitely worth a visit to soak up the maritime charm , and look at all the fishing boats bobbing about with the pleasure crafts. Quite a few youngsters fishing in the Kinness Burn section - watched by beady-eyed seagulls. There’s a harbour cafe, and toilets nearby on The Pends.
