Scotland - St. Andrews

Last weekend Myself and my Boyfriend were invited up to St. Andrews, Scotland, for a wedding. We stayed in a lovely luxury B&B called Easter Kincaple. We were really fortunate to get a room to be honest as the RAF Leuchers Airshow was on the same weekend. The B&B was stunning, so I thought I'd post a few pictures up of our room and the surroundings.

I loved our room, It was Beautiful, the trim of the cushions and Headboard were made from the same fabric as the Curtains, And along with this lovely print of fruit was a light red check fabric, It just all complimented each other so well.
We had a day bed in our room too, and it was too comfortable! I didn't want to move of it the first day.
This is an image from the Bathroom, as you can see the colour scheme has continued throughout this room too. The mirror was the thing that caught my eye the most. The detail was very pretty indeed. I do have to admit I spent quite a lot of time in this bathroom, (having a bath, shower or just sitting in the chair provided reading a magazine). It was too beautiful to not make the most of it. The windows of the B&B were lovely too, they had wooden shutters on the inside and would fold open to let the light in.

I loved my stay at this Luxury B&B, and would highly recommend this place. If you'd like to take a look at the accommodation with a bit more detail then visit their website here

As I said earlier there was an Airshow taking place that weekend too, and I managed to get a few not so decent photographs, sorry.
It was really quite difficult to get a decent picture as the Planes were so fast, I couldn't catch them in time.

As I'd never been to St. Andrews before, we went for a little tour around the town, It's actually quite a pretty place, and if you didn't know already it's where Prince William and Kate met at university.
This was the entrance of the Medieval Cathedral that used to stand tall over St. Andrews. It was Constructed in the 12th Century and later reformed by the Protestants in 1560.
You can see just how grand this Cathedral was. The scale of land that it sat on is over 100 meters long.
This might sound quite unusual or sadistic but I actually like taking my time and walking around graveyards, I seem to find it very peaceful and thought provoking. I often wonder how these people lived their lives and make up little stories in my mind of the type of person they might have been or what they did for a living.
And of Course I had to take a photo of the well known Scottish Thistle. I found these ones in a hedge as I was walking away from the Cathedral. They were a bit worn down due to the weather but I still thought they were pretty.


  1. Oh my, that B&B is so beautiful and amazing! So historical... and I would love to see that Medieval Cathedral with my own eyes some day. So wonderful...

  2. Hello,

    Easter Kincaple B&B is a beautiful house and in a lovely setting. It is now under new ownership.

    Many thanks,
