St Andrews Students
St Andrews, Fife
University Students, St Andrews Harbour, Fife, Scotland

The university students wearing their red cloaks taking their traditional end-of-year Sunday morning walk along the sea-wall after the service at St Salvator’s Chapel in North Street.

The harbour dates from the 13th century and still retains the original medieval form.

The main pier and breakwater were built with stone taken - robbed, in Time Team parlance - from the Cathedral in or around 1656

This is a delightful tradition going back many years and is one of the many things that gives St Andrews a unique character.

It also has similarities to the game “Lemmings” but let that go for now.

Looking along the pier from the path leading up the hill to the abbey and castle, right next to the harbour.

You may have noticed these are not aerial photographs? Agreed, but it was such an attractive scene that it seems a shame not to share it.


Images taken by 197 aerial photography are available for clients
in a very much higher quality than the .jpg images on this website.
