    For centuries, people have been travelling to St. Andrews. Whether
    they were on a holy pilgrimage to see the magnificent Cathedral
    and the preserved bones of St. Andrew, or devout golfers putting
    their skills to the test on the Old Course - that holy grail of golf
    courses - or just students and scholars jostling for a place at one of
    Scotland's most esteemed centres of learning, St. Andrews has
    always attracted pilgrims.


    Michael Tobert leads his readers through St. Andrews' historic highs
    and lows with a potent combination of the anecdotal and the
    informative. His writing is both astute and downright funny, and he
    proves that sometimes, truth really is stranger than fiction.
