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.
