Had an all too short visit to St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. St Andrews appears to be better known for golf and the Prince William-Kate Middleton romance, but it also houses a university and medical school (pre-clinical only) that punches well above its weight where research is concerned. It was a treat touring Falkland Palace as well as the small but remarkable Bell Pettigrew Museum of Natural History. Many thanks to Prof Matthew Holden for hosting us!
