Great hosts in Stu & Liz....Just do it! Those in the know just keep returning year after year. Ask to see Stu’s collection of aprons when he is cooking your breakfast.

Testimonial
“Amazing ExperienceWonderful place to stay. Stuart & Liz were amazing hosts to our golf party while we played the St Andrews courses. They were kind, courteous and funny and the accommodations were spot on. Super clean, comfortable......felt like home. I will absolutely stay there again.”
“Stayed at Shandon House with 18 yr-old son in a large room with two comfy beds. Bathroom was en-suite and modern. Hosts were welcoming and most helpful. We were gently introduced to the pleasures of haggis at a perfect Scottish breakfast.”

Local Attractions
Discover St Andrews' Historic Surroundings
Universally famous as the “Home of Golf”, St Andrews is home to the oldest University in Scotland and has many historical attractions tucked away in its elegant Medieval, Edwardian and Victorian streets and leafy quadrangles, including a stunning ruined Cathedral and the Castle with its Bottle Dungeon and Secret Underground Passage.
Today, the Old Course has hosted the Open Championship an incredible 29 times since 1873,  with 2015 being the most recent year to be hosted. This record of 29 Open Championships held by the Old Course is more than any other course, with The Open Championship currently played here every five years.
Everyone who plays the 18th hole at St Andrews walks over the 700 year old bridge, and many iconic pictures of the farewells of the most iconic golfers in history have been taken on the bridge. A life-size stone replica of the bridge is situated in the World Golf Hall of Fame museum in St Augustine Florida.
St. Andrews cathedral was founded to supply more accommodation than the older church of St Regulus (St. Rule) afforded. This older church, located on what became the cathedral grounds, had been built in the Romanesque style. Today, there remains the square tower, 33 metres (108 feet) high, and the quire, of very diminutive proportions.
The University of St Andrews  is a public research university. It is the oldest of the four ancient universities of Scotland and the third oldest in the English speaking world (following Oxford and Cambridge). It was founded between 1410 and 1413 when the Avignon Antipope Benedict XIII issued a Papal Bull to a small founding group of Augustinian clergy. Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge famously fell in love with Prince William while they were both at St Andrews University.
The Fife Coastal path which stretches from the Tay Road Bridge to beyond the Forth Road Bridge, offering spectacular coastline scenery. The walk is divided into sections and St Andrews offers the perfect stopping-off point.

“I spent 4 days at Shandon as part of a bucket list golf trip. I can honestly say that Stuart & Liz are the friendliest and most helpful of people. The whole house is spotless & met all of my requirements. I will be seeking a return to Shandon when next I play in Scotland.”

“I booked two rooms here in November, over the busy graduation period, and everything was to a 5* standard: room cleanliness and the quality of the breakfasts were particular highlights. Will definitely be back.”
