St Andrews is perhaps best know as the ‘Home of Golf’, however this seaside town offers so much more to see and experience for both visitors and locals alike. Glenderran Guesthouse is located close to the heart of St Andrews, just 250 yards from the first tee of the Old Course and the West Sands beach, and a similar distance from the main shopping area’s of Market Street, in the centre of town, and South Street, which offer a wide variety of shopping and amenities. This makes our guesthouse an ideal location for all activities, whether it be golfing, shopping or general sight-seeing. All can be reached without the need for transport.
The Royal Burgh and City of St Andrews is relatively small, with a population of 16,000. Miles of safe beaches surround St Andrews and are easily accessed from Glenderran for exhilarating walks along the North Sea Coast. Horseback riding, bird watching, castle tours, clay pigeon shooting, tennis, go karts, fishing, golf lessons, archery and many other activities are all available from the town. Shops, cafes, restaurants and traditional pubs are just a short walk from our doorstep. For those with a keen interest in history, St Andrews still retains a mediaeval town layout, with all roads leading to the East and the Cathedral of St Andrews, 12th Century, now in ruins but still magnificent. The view from St Rule’s tower, pictured on the left, in the grounds of the Cathedral, is quite amazing and well worth the effort of the climb up its stairs. St Andrews Castle, 13th Century, also now in ruins, was once the residence of the Archbishop of St Andrews. Both historical monuments are just a few minutes walk from Glenderran.
