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.

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.

I found out about this place from the Tripadvisor. 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

We spent a whole day here! The play park was brilliant, the bouncy castles & bikes were loved by the kids! We bought a picnic which was lovely as it was such nice weather. Went on the train ride and the tractor ride and finished the day with a pedalo ride on the lake. Such a brill day, can't wait... More

I visited the Park at the end of the season just as all the rides were closing. However, the park is immaculate and is beautifully kept and the staff are really friendly. During the season, there is a multitude of things to entertain children at no great cost. There is a café which serves basic food, tea and coffee but... More
