St. Rule's Tower, Saint Andrews

4.0 stars


Rule with a View

St. Rule's Tower is a landmark in St. Andrews. From whichever route you approach the burgh, you can see this square tower dominating the skyline. It is the oldest remaining part of the Cathedral, dating from the twelfth century, and it provides a wonderful vantage point from which to take in views of the town and the sea.

The climb to the top involves a very narrow, spiral stone staircase and is not for the claustrophobic or the faint of heart. It is quite an effort to get to the top, but the views on a clear day are wonderful. If you happen to be in St. Andrews on a gloomy or foggy day, however, I wouldn't recommend making the trek.

The Tower stands in the Cathedral grounds, and while entry into the grounds is free, you'll have to pay for the privilege of climbing the tower. The cost is £4 for adults (£3 concessions, £2 for children), unless you buy the joint ticket with the castle, in which case entry into both Castle and Tower costs only £7 (a £2 savings). If you are fit enough for the climb, the views will reward your effort. [more ]
