Clifftop views over St Andrews and the North Sea are reason enough to stay at Fairmont St Andrews. In the birthplace of golf, be sure to practice your swing on the resort’s two challenging, links-style courses. Afterward, work the kinks out with a signature treatment in the spa. Guests can also take a stroll around the 520-acre estate, accessing the Fife Coastal Path and exploring ancient ruins, or go kilt shopping along St Andrews’ cobbled streets. Smart tartan touches add a sense of place to the 211 spacious rooms. Dining options include the family-friendly Mediterranean and Scottish steak and local seafood bar & grill.
