Craigtoun Country Park - Review

Originally a part of Melville family estates, Craigtoun Country Park is a favorite family place to have a small picnic. The place has a number of rides and games for children and keeps its 18th century landscape intact while still offering modern amenities.

The Craigtoun Miniature Railway, bouncy castle, Italian garden, ‘Fairy Glen’, greenhouses and formal gardens offer a great time as you explore the historic property. Rowing at the Lake completes the visit.

Craigtoun Country Park Trips

Craigtoun Country Park , St Andrews Reviews

  • One of the loveliest public parks I've ever been to. Lovely grounds with sumptuous gardens, beautiful greens and a day's worth of fun for the family. Many free attractions, including a playground, trampolines, zip line, and ropes course. We paid £6 for 4 of us to paddle boat on the pond (worth it!l) You can buy a wrist band (£8) to do all the paid attractions (crazy golf, moon bounce, bikes, boat, and train). Not worth it if your kids are over 7 ( 2 of these are for 7 under only-moon bounce, bikes and the train is too small). We got a picnic at Tesco and enjoyed a great day. If you are traveling with kids, this is a great side trip for them!!

  • Great place for the whole family. Run by volunteers. Free admittance but rides are chargeable. Lots of room to run and play. Easy for pushchairs and wheelchairs too. Plenty of free parking.

  • Plenty of parking. Free entrance to park, rides are not too expensive and you get good value for money. Also has many attractions that are free. Plenty of wasps (see one of my images of wasps collected in jar). Vast grounds with many gardens. Most attractions didn't have a long waiting time.

  • Excellent place for children. Great for picnics. Wee train is great and boats great fun. Reasonably priced for some things and free for many things. You do not need to spend money .

  • Great wee park with lots to do for the kids. Not too far to walk to each activity without feeling like all the attractions are crammed together. Very relaxing boating on the lake and the kids loved the train and Puffin Billy.
