  • There is not much left of this once great monastery. Another victim of the reformation, what remains of this church is easily seen on one of the main streets and it is worth a 10 minutes break to walk...  more »

  • Nice little ruin in the central areas of St Andrews, certainly adds a medieval touch to local ambience.  more »

  • Pretty little landmark right in the middle of St Andrews. There’s just a tiny little information plaque next to it, not too much info on there, so you won’t spend more than a couple of minutes looking at it. The back is barred off so you can’t enter.
  • It's very pretty and right in the middle of town, easy to miss if you're not paying attention. I would be nice if they had a little more information available at it.
  • Good, gorey history, what a world we've created.
  • Good place to visit
  • A nice piece of preserved history.
