Other Events

On either side of YRM 2016 there are non-mathematical events that may be of interest to you, namely the St Andrews Highland Games and the Edinburgh ‘Fringe’ Festival. Read on to find out more.

St Andrews Highland Games

Sunday 31st July sees the return of the St Andrews Highland Games. With competitions ranging from running, tossing the caber, and tug-of-war, this is an event not to be missed if you’re after a real Scottish experience.

Edinburgh Festival

The world’s largest arts festival, the Edinburgh Fringe, begins on Friday 5th August 2016, the day after the close of YRM 2016. As St Andrews is less than an hour away from Edinburgh, we strongly advise you to visit the festival, especially if you haven’t been before!
