Hidden St Andrews: Discover the Hidden History of One of Scotland’s Oldest Towns
By (author) Susan McMullan
The Auld Grey Toon is a picture-perfect coastal gem rich in history, learning and culture. Known worldwide as the home of golf, St Andrews boasts iconic beaches, a picturesque castle and cathedral, and one of the last remaining city gates in Scotland. But as well as this fascinating yet familiar heritage, there are lots more hidden treasures lurking in the wynds, alleyways and ancient walls, just waiting to be discovered. There’s the Step Rock, hidden caves, the Dooking Place, royal connections, the PH cobbles, the Lammas Market, an assassinated archbishop, fabulous fudge doughnuts, a host of ghostly apparitions and much more. Hidden St Andrews takes you on a journey through the town like no other, revealing a forgotten past and bringing new life to the city’s unique charm and personality.
