Craigtoun Country Park

A great-value family day out by St Andrews

Craigtoun is a 47 acre country park located just 2 miles from the historic town of St Andrews. The park itself is open 24/7 and it’s a great day out for the whole family. During the season (Easter to October) you can enjoy rides on the Rio Grande miniature railway and the Puffin' Billy road train, as well as Boating, Putting and Crazy Golf. There are Bouncy Castles and Pedal Cars to keep the little ones entertained and 2022 saw the introduction of a Go-Kart track suitable for older children and adults. All weather permitting for safety reasons.

The Craigtoun Cafe serves a selection of hot and cold food, cakes and traybakes, teas and coffees and, of course, ice cream. The Cafe is currently open daily from 10 am - 2 pm, with opening hours due to increase again when the 2024 season starts at the end of March.
