14 August 2019: Day 4 of our Grand Tour of Scotland: Part 5 – St Andrews

Good day everyone,

It is a beautiful day here in South Africa. Hope you are all doing great and are staying positive.

Let’s continue our Grand Tour of Scotland and the last part of St Andrews. I know I did not cover all the attractions there is to see. This will be fixed in the future.

After we left St Andrews Cathedral we went to the Martyr’s Memorial and St James Church.

The Martyr’s Monument was built to commemorate the Protestant figures who was martyred in St Andrews during 1520 to 1560. It also highlights the important role the town St Andrews played in the Reformation. The views from the monument is beautiful. I can’t get over the beautiful architecture and colors of the buildings. The gardens are well maintained and beautiful.

Down the road from the Martyr’s Memorial I spotted the tower of the St James Catholic Church. I decided that I want to go and have a look at it. I was not disappointed. The only regret I had was all the cars in front of the Church.
