St Andrews Castle

St Andrews
Fife
KY16 9A

St Andrews Castle consists of the ruins of the castle of the Archbishops of St Andrews, dating in part from the 13th century.

Notable features include a "bottle-dungeon" and mine and counter-mine tunnelled during the siege that followed the murder of Cardinal Beaton in 1546. These siege works are the finest of their kind in Europe.

A fascinating exhibition in the visitor centre brings the history of the castle and cathedral to life.

This property is managed by Historic Scotland.
