“Walk on the West Sands Beach.”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

After walking the Old Course and thru St Andrews my girlfriend & I ended out visit with a walk on the beach. It was fun to pretend to jog on the beach where the runners in Chariots of Fire were filmed. The beach was not our main focus for our visit but it was enjoyable to stroll in the sands.

“Must walk”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

This stunning beach is even in November a treat. Take a walk at the rare moments where there is no wind and when the tide is out. Dont forget your Wellies!

“If you like beaches”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Some beaches are man made.
Some beaches are created
Some beaches are deserted
Some over populated
Some beaches are sun drenched
Some beaches are wind swept
Some beaches run for ages
Some are pocket hankies
This one runs forever
This runs wild and windy
This is almost deserted
Just stand and contemplate it
