Despite being the patron saint of Scotland (his cross is what's depicted on the country's flag), St. Andrew himself never even went to Scotland. Well, at least not when he was alive.
Legend has it that St. Andrew's relics were supernaturally brought to St. Andrews from Constantinople during the tenth century by a man named Regulus (nicknamed Rule). However, when you fact check this story, you realize that the only thing regulated about this man was his name. Historically, he could've been a fugitive Irish monk (Harrison Ford should've made that movie) expelled along with St. Columba in the 500s, but it's more likely that the bishop of Hexxam, Acca, brought them back from his Roman tour when he founded a see at St. Andrews in the 700s. What's in a name though? Dates matter more, so locals favor the earliest founding date possible. St. Rule may never have existed, but this church pictured above called St. Rule's Tower does.
If there's one thing St. Andrews taught me, it's that every stone in Scotland has a story.
