PLACES TO EAT & DRINK IN AND AROUND ST ANDREWS
For many years living on the Isle of Skye I could access some of the best local produce available. When I made the decision to swap coasts in 2012 to the less rugged shores of Fife I did wonder if the local produce on offer was going to be anywhere as plentiful. I needn’t have worried.
