Clear night at the Bandstand

A clear night and full moon at the Band Stand on Bow Butts.

Bow Butts is an open piece of grassy parkland lying behind the Royal and Ancient Golf Club in St Andrews.

The name Bow Butts comes from the ancient requirement for all able bodied men to be able to bear arms in time of war, the weapon of choice being bow and arrow. Bow Butts was the archery range for St. Andrews.

On the hill to the right you can see the Martyrs Monument, dedicated to those who gave their lives for their beliefs.
