We will be spending a week in Edinburgh beginning Sept. 4. We want to travel to Dysart where my ancestors (Symes) came from for a day or so. My husband wants to visit St. Andrews, and we also just want to view the lovely scenery along the shore. We aren't sure if we should rent a car, or is there is some commercial transport that would accomodate us. Are there any recommendations about transport or restaurants in those areas?
Also, I am an artist and will be looking for interesting sights in these areas to photograph, so I can paint them when I get home to the U.S. I would like to do a lovely painting in honor of my Scottish ancestry.
