Britain's Finest Luxury Hotels


The BEST WESTERN Scores Hotel is the closest hotel to the 1st tee of the world famous Old Course and the Royal and Ancient Clubhouse. A 5 minute walk will take you to many of the town's attractions including the ancient castle and cathedral ruins, the 600 year old University (Scotland's oldest) and the historic town centre.

Whether travelling on business or pleasure, exploring the sight of St Andrews or experiencing the thrill of the Old Course first hand, the BEST WESTERN Scores Hotel is the ideal choice for visitors to St Andrews, golfers and non-golfers alike.

The hotel occupies two traditional Victorian Town Houses dating back to 1864 and 1880 and retains many of the large former drawing rooms as Junior Suites.

There are 36 rooms in total, many of which have stunning views over the West Sands beach whilst other enjoy an outlook over the landscaped garden and terraces.



The Rotary Club of St Andrews was founded in November 1927 with only five members, but has grown steadily over the years and now has seventy members.

The club is involved in a wide range of initiatives, raising between ten and fifteen thousand pounds each year. This money goes to support those less fortunate than ourselves, both locally and abroad. The funds are raised in a variety of ways including a Jazz Night, Sponsored Run, Garden Party, the Dunhill Golf Competition Raffle, Spectacle Collection and Books Abroad. The local and international charities which have benefited from these fund raising events over the last few years include Polio Plus, Cancer Research, RNLI, Diabetes UK, Breast Cancer, British Heart Foundation, CHAS, St Andrews in Bloom, Erskine Hospital and sponsorship of school pupils to attend a leadership camp and visits to the European Parliament.

In addition to fund raising, the club arranges the following community events: Kids Out, Senior Citizens Treat, International Golf Week, Stroke Awareness Day, Primary School Quiz, Student Family Link Scheme and Student Christmas Lunch.

The club meets for lunch at the BEST WESTERN Scores Hotel every Wednesday at 1.00pm, when fellow Rotarians would be most welcome to attend. If you wish more details about our Rotary Club please visit our website


Along with our mother St Andrews Club, we serve the St. Andrews area of Fife. We derive our Club name from the site of the monastery of Kilrymont or Kilyrmond (later the cathedral church of St Andrew).

The St Andrews Kilrymont Club was formed in 1996 to provide an evening group alternative to the St Andrews Club, which is luncheon club. The St Andrews Kilrymont Club received its charter on 25th August 1996. The Club has now around 30 members, including an increasing number of ladies.

The Club meets for supper at the BEST WESTERN Scores Hotel every Tuesday evening at 6:45pm and fellow Rotarians would be most welcome to attend. If you wish more details about our Rotary Club please visit our website

The club is a daughter club of Soroptimist International of Dundee and one of the seven clubs of Scotland North Region. Our members live or work in St Andrews, North Fife, Cupar and the Howe of Fife and the East Neuk.

Other fundraising events, held in the past few years have included a sponsored parachute jump by one intrepid club member, Ladies Day, a Charity Lunch, music concerts held in the Byre Theatre, Art Auctions and hosting an evening with the Pampered Chef and other local specialist food retailers. Events held at the homes of members have included a Fun Day, Candlelite parties, a Spring tea and a Summer Barbecue. One member, Anne Rutherford, completed a 58-mile long sponsored cycle ride in April 2009 to raise funds for Project Sierra, the SI Quadrennial project that ended in July 2011.

Regular Social Events are the Annual Christmas Lunch and a Summer Outing, as well as an International Evening, held in January, when visitors from overseas are often invited to attend.

Each year, the President usually selects a charity to be the main beneficiary of the club's fundraising efforts. Club members then choose several smaller charities to support. Charities which are supported may be local, national or international.

The main project for 2009-2011 was working to support and help the Inclusiveness Team, who work with students at Elmwood College, Cupar with special educational needs. The main charity for 2012 was MND Scotland, that supports people suffering from motor neurone disease, and in 2013 the club will be raising funds for the Special Needs Unit at the Canongate Primary School in St Andrews plus three other local charities.

Eric Brown, General Manager of the Scores Hotel (on left) presents a cheque to Ray Pead, Treasurer of the St Andrews Partnership.

For the second year running, the ‘Brighter St Andrews’ charitable fund has benefited from donations collected from guests at the Best Western Scores Hotel.

The excellent sum of £652.00 was raised mainly during the last festive season, from raffles on party nights and during the Hogmanay celebrations. It follows on from the £609 donated the previous year.

Mr Brown said, “Once again, our generous guests at The Scores were happy to support a good cause like Brighter St Andrews, which helps preserve and enhance the town’s built and natural environment. We were really pleased that the sum raised exceeded last year’s total – and it probably helped that guests knew that some of their donations would be helping to fund restoration works on the Martyrs’ Monument, which is right opposite our front door!”

Ray Pead said, “The success of Brighter St Andrews depends not just upon generous members of the public, but also upon local businesses putting in the effort to collect the money from their customers. In this respect, Eric and his team have once again proved their mettle. They really are Top Scores!”
