One of the lovely things about being a blogger is being asked to pack a bag for the weekend and head off for a grown up break; somewhere without the kids, somewhere to relax and enjoy and take in somewhere new. Well that’s what I did recently when I headed north of the border and up to Bonnie Scotland to sample the delights of the famous Fairmont St Andrew’s hotel.
Now I must stress I don’t play golf, know little about golf, my dad plays it and I watch the important stuff like The Masters and The Ryder Cup but that’s about it. However, I do know that the Fairmont St Andrew’s hotel and golf course is somewhat of a legend in the golfing stakes and is one of THE courses to play if you go to Scotland. The hotel has a prestigious history and the website is clearly proud of this describing the hotel as ‘ a truly unique and special venue that makes your visit one to remember, with its lavish and stunning surroundings, peaceful setting and stunning cliff top views of St Andrews and the North Sea.’
