William & Kate's SCOTLAND

A travel guide to St. Andrews-the college town where the royal romance began

1. UNIVERSITY OF ST. ANDREWS

The school-founded in 1413-is where 19-year-old art-history majors Kate Middleton and Prince William first met. They spent nights at local pub Ma Bells and days, says an onlooker, "gazing into each other's eyes" at rugby matches.

2. BALMORAL CASTLE

While in school, William would take Kate on weekend trips to the royal family's nearby summer retreat, where they'd stay in his three-bedroom "cottage."

3. THE OAK ROOMS

The couple shared intimate dinners at this restaurant in St. Andrews' boutique hotel Ogstons, on North Street. The prince's favorite dish? Chicken fajitas, says a source. The hotel is located near the renowned Old Course at St. Andrews, one of the oldest golf courses in the world.
