St Andrews Students
St Andrews, Fife
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.

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.
