St Andrews Castle
On a headland to the north of St Andrews stand the ruins of the town’s castle, the main residence of the bishops and archbishops of St Andrews – the focal point of the Church in medieval Scotland. Today, explore the underground 16th-century siege mine and countermine, and the ‘bottle dungeon’. There is a visitor centre with exhibition and a children’s trail.
