As we all know Prince William met the girl of his dreams, the lovely Kate, at St. Andrew’s University. In fact 60% of students meet their partner here. This wee grey town on the Fife seashore is the place to fall in love. The Old Course Golf Resort and Spa is one of the most luxurious and romantic hotels in Scotland. The views from many bedrooms and from the Road Hole Restaurant and Bar is of the wonderful West Sands Beach, where Chariots of Fire was filmed.
The Old Course Hotel has created a selection of special Valentine’s Day experiences. The ultimate Hopeless Romantics Experience invites couples to enjoy a magical VIP weekend which begins with a helicopter pick up from Edinburgh, Aberdeen or Glasgow, and a chauffeured drive from St Andrews helipad, with champagne and handmade chocolates on arrival. Your Valentine’s suite will have a private “bath butler” and rose petal turndown. In the evening, experience a six-course tasting menu in the Road Hole Restaurant, with each course paired with a selection of wines. [VD]
