Sadly, it's been a ruin for so long now, the rocks are smooth and rounded from centuries of weather and rain. But you can still get the idea of how grand it must have been.
The best view the cathedral offers is for those who have already passed.
Walking around the cathedral is free and probably one of the most impressive things we've seen since moving to Scotland.
Down the road is the St. Andrews Castle.
The castle was also built in the 1100s by Bishop Roger as his official residence. If we'd seen it first, we would have been impressed, but after the Cathedral, it looked so small. That said, a lot of the impressive parts of the castle are underground, like the Bottle dungeon and such. It wasn't free to see, and we're not so into old torture chambers, so we passed on that one. From there we wandered into town to just see what we could see...
