We went to St. Andrews to look at the university not to golf. Although there were a few hearty souls out on the links even in the freezing, blowing rain. It rained continuously the whole time we were there. I guess if my son likes it in the rain, he will like it even better when the sun is shining. Which the locals assured us was much more frequent then other parts of Scotland. Anyway, it was beautiful there...even if it was dreich the whole time we were there. We learned this new word, dreich, meaning miserable, cold, and wet, and that it was.
The photos above are of the medieval cathedral ruins...located on a hilltop overlooking the ocean.
These are some of the beautiful and ancient university buildings. Having spent time around the collegiate Gothic buildings at Yale University, I was a bit in awe of this place with it's actual Gothic buildings.
