In Scotland: St. Andrews
The ancient town of St. Andrews, on the Scottish coast north of Edinburgh is best known today for the world's most famous golf course. But even if you're not a golf fan, St. Andrews has a lot that will interest you, including a ruined abbey and castle, and an university which causes the town to be known as the Oxford of Scotland. These photographs were taken on May 12th, when things that far north were just coming into bloom. There has been a chilly spring in Scotland in 2006.
