The University of St Andrews, the oldest university in Scotland, is famous for its traditions - red gowns and pier walks, academic parents and their giving of 'raisins' - or, more frequently, wine or worse - on Raisin Sunday. As the university celebrates its 600th birthday, Edi Stark reveals what our oldest university stands for now.
