Tartan Old Course Walk

Every Sunday, The Old Course in St Andrews is open to the public for all to enjoy. Golf is put on hold and dogs, children, townspeople, and students are able to stroll through St Andrews fabled Golf Courses. Sundays are for walking!
Here I’m at the 17th hole.

As much as I walk this Course, the view behind me always seems spectacular. I feel very lucky to have called St. Andrews home these past three years. For those of you that are golfers, the Links clubhouse is behind me to the left and directly above is Hamilton Hall (brick building with turrets). Hamilton Hall was an old Hall of Residence for St Andrews University Students and was recently purchased by the Old Course Hotel and converted to luxury condos. For all you guys looking for the ultimate man cave, here’s a link (get it??!).

Our Golf Course walk left my tummy rumbling so we headed for lunch at The Seafood Restaurant, one of my favorite restaurants in St. Andrews. A glass castle filled with fresh catches, perched over the North Sea & overlooking West Sands Beach. During the off season the Seafood Restaurant offers a two course prefix lunch menu for £14.95. I ordered Seabream with mash and swiss chard, pumpkin soup and of course loads of their delicious bread!
Is there really anything better than bread with sweet butter and coarse sea salt? As you can see the bread plate was history before our soup arrived!

It was a perfect way to end the week before Harry headed back to London.

      I’m sorry for causing the food craving, but good bread is always worth it! Oh, you will just love Scotland! Edinburgh is fantastic! I will make sure to do a few posts of my favorite places to go in Edinburgh.
