Bottom of the Pends

The Pends is the road that runs from St Andrews Harbour up to the Cathedral.

The walls here are probably built using the stone from the ruined cathedral. I doubt very much that they are original medieval city walls, especially since there is now a public toilet in the round tower on the left of this photo. The building on the right with the large cross on it, is the old town mortuary, this is now also a public ladies toilet.

The congregation has had a number of different homes since it was formed back in 1738, but the current building, pictured above, was built in 1865. Currently the church is undergoing refurbishment so the congregation have been moved once again, this time to Strathkinness Church for the duration of the rennovations.

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.
