MINI TOUR PART 1
EDINBURGH TO INVERNESS
This podcast takes you on a tour from Edinburgh to Inverness. It is the first part of a Tour Trilogy that will see you travel all the way from Edinburgh to Inverness and back, calling into some of the most iconic places in Scotland. This first part takes you from Edinburgh to St Andrews. You will be starting on the outskirts of the city of Edinburgh and on making you way into the medieval centre, you will hear the story of how Edinburgh formed and the people that lived there. The castle takes centre stage and you will be given an introduction to this enormous fortress sitting on top of an extinct volcano.
You will hear about the New town, an incredibly beautiful Georgian construction of 1770 and on leaving Edinburgh to head north you will hear about the new Queensferry crossing bridge just opened in 2017. You will travel through the Kingdom of Fife arriving at the home of Golf, St Andrews and learn about the amazing St Andrews Cathedral and why this was such an important place in the Middle Ages. Kate and William’s University gets a mention and, obviously, you will learn about the Old Course and the home of golf. A great start to your mini tour of Scotland.
