St Andrews Cathedral & Tower [04:12]
As well as being famous for golf, castle, university, Wills and Kate, St Andrews has a magnificient ruined medieval cathedral and tower. There are great views of the town from the top of St Rule`s Tower. St Andrews Cathedral dominated the history of the medieval church in Scotland from its construction in the 12th century until the Protestant Reformation in 1560. Scotland's largest and most magnificent medieval church, the cathedral was the seat of Scotland's leading bishops (and from 1472 archbishops). It occupied a site used for worship since the 8th century AD, when the relics of St Andrew, Scotland's patron saint, are said to have been brought here. The cathedral buildings are surrounded by a graveyard, and encircled by the most complete and imposing monastic enclosure walls in Scotland. Even in its ruinous state the cathedral remains a prominent landmark, the focus of the three medieval streets of St Andrews, and highly visible from the sea. St Rule's Tower St Rule's Church, with its 33m/108ft tower, was probably built around 1130 as the first place of worship for the newly-arrived Augustinian canons. This Continental priestly order supplanted the Culdees, a Celtic monastic order that had been present on the site for centuries. The lofty tower may have been a beacon for pilgrims heading for the shrine of St Andrew.
