Tour Scotland Video St Andrew's Day Drive Around St Andrews Fife
Tour Scotland video of a St Andrew's Day drive around St Andrews, Fife, Scotland. The name St Andrews derives from the town's claim to be the resting place of bones of the apostle Andrew. According to legend, St Regulus, or St Rule, brought the relics to Kilrymont, where a shrine was established for their safekeeping and veneration while Kilrymont was renamed in honour of the saint. This is the origin of a third name for the town Kilrule. The establishment of the present town began around 1140 by Bishop Robert possibly on the site of the ruined St Andrews Castle.
