West Port, St Andrews

The West Port or entry to the old burgh of St Andrews dates from 1589 and is the best example of its kind in Scotland. Situated at the west end of South Street, it comprises a central archway flanked by semi-octagonal 'rownds'. It was reconstructed in 1843-45 with the addition of relief panels on either side carrying the arms of the city and of David I.
