“Now part of many a bucket list as a ‘must do’ whilst in St Andrews”

Please note
These are factual, historical, educational tours, and w
ith this, a note of caution to the unwary. This is the real stuff. If you’re looking for theatrics or costumed actors, you won’t find any here. Neither will you find any contrivance or embellishment, and the only ‘jumper ooters’ are the real ghosts!
