We have made the difficult decision to postpone our wedding until the Summer of 2022. While we will be having a small ceremony this Thanksgiving, we still cannot wait to get to Scotland, albeit a bit later, to celebrate with all of you.

Fife Coastal Path: St. Andrews to Anstruther

Picture of Fife Coastal Path: St. Andrews to Anstruther

This route follows a lovely section of the Fife Coastal Path from St Andrews to Anstruther. The route runs for a distance of just over 15 miles on a fairly flat coastal path. Along the way there's much to enjoy with beautiful beaches (including the ones situated on our wedding venue's grounds), caves, and pretty coastal villages. You'll pass through Crail, with its lovely harbour, and many historic buildings dating back to the 12th century. Once in Anstruther, reward yourselves with Anstruther Fish and Chips, a no fuss classic stop ranked 'Best Fish and Chip Shop in Scotland' year after year. Give your tired dogs a break and hop in a cab back to town (about £25).

Not up for 15 miles? Hop on the path out of town for a gorgeous overlook and turn back when you’ve had enough.

Beware: this is a tidal path- the Dormans girls have gotten into a precarious situation filled within stinging nettles thanks to a rising tide. Plan accordingly.

Playing the Old Course can seem challenging to arrange, but there are several ways to make direct bookings. Check this link for advanced tee times. Within 48 hours, you can enter the Old Course Ballot, where over 50% of tee times are allocated. If all else fails, on the day, you can turn up as a single golfer to join existing parties.

Should you just want to enjoy a game of golf without the pressures of playing on the Old Course, St. Andrews has 6 other stellar courses. Laura's favorite for a relaxed day out is the juniors course, the Balgove, which provides advanced golfers with the opportunity to work on their short game, while still offering excitement and a chance at competitiveness to beginners.
