Culross

Culross has historic cobble stone streets, which are a bit higher in the middle of the street in order to let the rain easily drain. Clever, huh?


Historic Houses in Culross

Another photo of the beautifully restored houses in Culross. This is a museum today.


Firth of Forth

A bit further east, between Aberdour and Kinghorn, you have excellent views across the Firth of Forth with its small islands embedded into the calm sea (here you see Inchcolm).


Pittenweem

Pittenweem is a small town, situated west of Anstruther. Its main feature is the fish harbour and the fish auctions for fresh fish. There are very few B&Bs in this area, so be prepared to drive through to St. Andrews (which is what we did by the way).


St. Andrews Cathedral

We finally arrived in St. Andrews. This is the old Cathedral at the end of South Street. It was once one of the biggest churches in Europe, much longer than St. Paul's Cathedral in London. It took 200 years to build and was finally opened by King Robert the Bruce in 1318.


St. Andrews Bay

This is a fine view across St. Andrews Bay - as you can see, there was rain coming up, but there was also some sun sparkling on the open sea.
