Craigtoun Park is a 47 acre park only 2 miles from St Andrews. It's a great day out for the whole family. Try the Rio Grande railway, Crazy Golf, Putting and Puffin,Billy - the road train that takes you round the whole Park. There are boats and pedaloes, a Bouncy castle and pedal cars for the little uns. The cafe serves teas and coffees and has a huge selection of ice creams. Park is open weekends until 28th June and then daily until the end of August, then weekends through September and much of October.

We live nearby and frequent park numerous times in the year. If you are a frequent visitor it is worthwhile and more cost effective to buy an annual family pass which allows unlimited access to boats, bouncy castle, train, tractor ride and crazy golf. Otherwise the park is free and has great play area, trampolines, wooded play area and zip... More

Great family day out. There's plenty to do from a great adventure park to a miniature train. You can bring a picnic or enjoy the cafe. A couple of miles outside St Andrews set in stunning countryside.

Even with the park closed it's still lovely to come with the kids. The park is great and just walking/cycling around the grounds at this time of year is very special. Cant wait for the rest of the park to open!

It's a great place to spend time with kids near St Andrews, which more of a grown up place. Very quiet in winter time, though.

We were there in the Winter.Unfortunately when we were there a lot of the activities: boats and pedalos, bouncy castle, putting green, crazy golf course, pedal cars, miniature railways were not available/in operation. Its cafe was not opened either. I found out later that it only comes to life from April... More

Craigtoun Country Park is located some 4 miles South West of St Andrews - just follow the signs for Craigtoun or the Duke's Golf Course. The 47 acre site is owned by Fife Council, but is operated by the Friends of Craigtoun Park, a charity who have been running the amenities since 2012. It is an oasis of calm offering... More
