St Andrews & Fife Walks is the essential guide to an area which has witnessed some of the most dramatic incidents in Scottish history. Events took place here that shaped the nation and altered the destinies of Mary, Queen of Scots; John Knox; Cardinal Beaton and many others that history has forgotten. Each walk uses contemporary accounts and anecdotes to bring these events to life - from the murder of an archbishop on Magus Muir, to ghost hunting at St Andrews Cathedral and the arrival of the Spanish Armada at Anstruther. Fully illustrated with photographs and maps, this guide is an invaluable companion for anyone exploring Scotland's oldest university town, the Lomond Hills and the rich seafaring heritage of the East Neuk coast.
