St ANDREWS CASTLE

St Andrews Castle
St ANDREWS CASTLE

The castle at St Andrews, now ruined, was once the bishop's fortress palace and was at the heart of the Scottish Reformation. Perched on a headland, there are fabulous views from its low towers and a good exhibition in the visitor centre. Features include a gruesome bottle dungeon and a probably unique example of medieval siege mining and counter-mining.
