  • St Andrews Castle is a ruin located on a rocky promontory overlooking a small beach called Castle Sands and the adjoining North Sea.

    There has been a castle standing at the site since the times of Bishop Roger (1189-1202), son of the Earl of Leicester. It housed the burgh’s wealthy and powerful bishops while St Andrews served as the ecclesiastical centre of Scotland during the years before the Protestant Reformation.

    The castle’s grounds are now maintained by Historic Scotland, and include a visitor centre with displays on its history. Some of the best surviving carved fragments from the castle are displayed in the centre, which also has a shop.
