    St Andrews, Scotland

     
    St Andrews is a former royal burgh on the East coast of Fife in Scotland. The town is home to the University of St Andrews, the third oldest university in the English-speaking world and the oldest in all of Scotland. It is also the University Prince William and Kate Middleton attended together.

    St Andrews is also known worldwide as the "home of golf" because the famous links are the most frequent venue for The Open Championship, the oldest of golf's four major championships. Many visitors travel to St Andrews for several courses ranked among the finest in the world, as well as for the incredible beaches.

    West Sands Beach in St Andrews was used as a location for the film Chariots of Fire, the scene, in which several of the main characters run along the beach, has become widely recognized and one of the most famous scenes in British film history.

    I visited St. Andrews, Scotland, in November of 2009.
