St Andrews The Postcard Collection

Availability: In stock

Full of archaic charm, St Andrews has plenty to offer with its breathtaking coastal scenery and beautiful ruins. Not just a pretty face, this Fife settlement is also home to the third oldest university in the United Kingdom; alumni include the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton. Also a sporting hotspot, it is well known for its golf.

First mentioned during the Dark Ages and known as Kilrymont, it was inhabited by farmers and fishermen. The sixteenth century was particularly troublesome for the area, with feuds between Catholics and Protestants. Its cathedral, the oldest in Scotland, fell into disuse when Catholic mass was outlawed during the Reformation period. St Andrews: The Postcard Collection boasts a fascinating array of postcards documenting St Andrews’ character, culture and rich history.
