The Home of Golf

Renowned as the home of golf, the St Andrews now boasts 5 golf courses in addition to the famous “Old Course”. There are a further 8 Championship courses in the North Fife area.

St Andrews is the base for the R&A, the organiser of The Open Championship, golf’s oldest major.  The R&A takes its name from The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, which had responsibility for the game up until 2004, though the two are now distinct organisations.

To find out more about playing St Andrews’ golf courses, take a look at the St Andrews Links website which has course details and information on bookings.

All of the St Andrews photographs on our website, and the prints hanging on the wall in the apartment were produced by our friend landscape photographer Mark Sunderland, who has stayed at the flat when exploring the Fife coast.  You can see more of Mark’s landscape photography in the portfolio section on his website.

3c Gillespie Terrace, St Andrews Holiday Apartment Interior – Living Room

We’ve put together a new website for 3c Gillespie Terrace for the 2013 holiday season and we hope you like it! The flat has had a new coat of paint since the interior was last photographed (and the kitchen now sports a brand new washing machine/drier and very posh iron!) so we’ve got a new set of interior photos showing both bedrooms and the bathroom as well as the living areas and kitchen so you can see our comfortable holiday apartment in all its glory.

There’s a slideshow of all the interior photos on our Apartment page.

We hope you enjoy your stay in St Andrews!
