St Andrews is just north the Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth. It is known worldwide as the “home of golf”. The town is also home to the University of St Andrews, the third oldest university in the English-speaking world.

Directions to the shop – We are situated about half way along South Street (almost opposite Madras college). There is parking directly outside the shop (£1 per hour mon-sat & free on Sundays). The bus station and free car parks are a 5-10 minute walk from the shop.

Staff Recommendations – For coffee try Taste on North Street or The Cottage Kitchen on Logies Lane. Northpoint on North Street is great for breakfast or just a mid day snack. For lunch we recommend Mitchell’s on Market street or if it is nice weather an al fresco bite from the kiosk at the east sands (possibly the best view in town?). For dinner The Adamson (South Street), Maisha (Crail’s lane) or of course Fish and Chips (they are all good).

Local Knowledge – Highly recommend are Tentsmuir Forest and Beach, a stunning forest and dune/beach walk anytime of the year. Plus a seal colony at the very northern-most tip. Also the Fife fishing villages of Crail, Pittenweem and Anstruther are gems and sit on the Fife Coastal Path. Pittenweem hosts an art festival every August where artist’s houses become galleries for a week. Check out pittenweemartsfestival.co.uk. Within St Andrews the castle, cathedral and university buildings provide a stunning backdrop to the town and are worth exploring. If you are looking for a short, sheltered walk, the Lade Braes is a hidden treasure and perfect when the weather is “changeable”. Of course no trip to St Andrews would be complete without a walk on either the east or west sands.

    A reminder that this weekend is the last of the Summer Essentials Sale, which finishes on Sunday 7th June!

    We still have plenty of bargains on offer, from the gent’s Fenland Shirt (WAS £39, NOW £31.20) to the women’s Malay Top (WAS £49, NOW £39.20).

    There’s also still 20% off the Elite Jacket; make sure to grab the offer before it goes back to full price!

    We’ve put together a world travel board and are looking for pictures of customers in their Rohan gear! It’s always nice to see people enjoying their clothes in every corner of the globe and we want to showcase this.

    So, whether you’re wearing your Nightfall in the Artic or your Trailblazers in Africa, we’d love for you to bring in a memento from your trip that we can stick on our map!

    Having been back working with the Rohan team for a week, I’m back up to speed with the new Summer stock.

    I’m especially loving this year’s women’s Linen Plus range! Rohan’s linen is always great, but this year boasts some completely new products, including the Malay top, shirt, dress and jacket. These, added with the customer favourite Tunis range, make for a lovely Summer collection.

    Besides the beautiful designs, all of our Linen is crafted with travel and ease in mind. Using a linen/polyester blend, Rohan linen is highly crease resistant, meaning you don’t need to iron it everytime you sit down! It also breathes wonderfully, is lightweight and dries quickly.

    If gents are reading this thinking, ‘but what about us?’, good news! We have the very smart Maroc jacket and trousers – wear them together to make a Summer suit or mix and match – and the Zephyr shirt, which looks great with a pair of jeans.

    So if you’re headed somewhere hot or (like me) are hoping for a good Summer here in the UK, Linen Plus may well be the product for you.

  4. Rohan St. Andrews Team says:

    Last day of the Mid Season Sale tomorrow (Monday)! Still plenty of great offers left in the shop. Hope everyone has a great bank-Monday – we’ll be open our regular hours of 09:30-17:30.

    What gorgeous weather we’re having today! I know I’m not the only one who has underestimated the power of the sun as we’ve had customers in looking at and buying Pacer Capris and shorts, short sleeved Fenland Shirts, and the Malay linen dress.

    If you happen to be in town enjoying the day, do pop by the shop. And if you’re not looking to get more sun, we also have plenty of SPF 40 clothing to help protect you from it.

    Back from my holiday in Spain, where I’ve used my Rohan gear in ernest for the first time. The weather started off like a Scottish summer, i.e. bright and breezy, then we had a heat wave! I was wearing Trailblazers, Core Silver Tees, Microgrid Fleece, and a Windshadow Jacket. I also had an Elite Jacket and Overtrousers which fortunately weren’t needed but took up no space or weight in my pack. I have to say that the gear performed magnificiently! The tees kept me cool and dry and extremely comfortable, the trousers were great for hill walking and around the town and the windshadow jacket was hardly off my back all week. I can thoroughly recommend this gear for an active holiday or just for general travel.

  7. Jenna (Deputy Manager) St. Andrews says:

    A huge thank you to everyone who donated unwanted clothing to Gift Your Gear in March. Those who receive it will certainly be pleased.

    If you happen to be in St Andrews on this beautiful day, do pop in. We have some lovely new colours in for this season.

  8. Dylan (Sales) St. Andrews says:

    ‘Winter’s End’ is the ambitious title of our latest offer, in stores now. There’s up to 40% off our winter products, so if you’ve always fancied the incredibly cosy Nightfall Jacket, the light-as-air Icepack Jacket or the fantastic Winter Bags then come along before Sunday and find yourself a bargain.

    There’s plenty on offer and while we hope you don’t need them, these products could be exactly what you need to fight back against the… changeable Scottish weather.

  9. Dylan (Sales) St. Andrews says:

    What light through yonder window breaks?

    Spring: it is the best of times, it is the worst of times. The first sunlight of the changing season brings with it new hopes and new plans for tomorrow, new colours and new life. Alas, the loss of our familiar grey overhead to spring brings with it just as many new challenges. The sun, as terrible as it is beautiful, burns our skin, just as the sweltering heat it brings makes us sweat and retreat to air conditioned sanctuary. This is of course not to mention the blight of the Scottish countryside – a plague of midges.

    Here at Rohan, comfortable as we are in the Icepack Jackets, endless fleeces and cosy Troggings which have served us so well over the past few months, we look to the needs of the future with a new season of products in store now. Take our ‘coolant’ technology, which will let you enjoy the sun and stay a crucial few degrees more comfortable. That’s not all, come along to Rohan St. Andrews to find out about our UPF protection clothing, our waterproof ‘Barricade’ jackets or our ‘Biteguard’ shirts and trousers, which give you one more weapon against the midge hordes.

    Fear no more the heat o’ the sun, nor the furious winter’s rages; Rohan is here.
