St Andrews Castle

St Andrews Castle was the chief residence of the bishops, and later archbishops, of St Andrews. They were Scotland's leading churchmen, and lived in a manner reflecting their exalted status. They also had to be prepared to defend themselves and the property of the Church – hence their strong castle.
During its 450-year history, the castle served as episcopal palace, fortress and state prison. It was also the setting for many important events.
