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 , St Andrews Reviews

  • 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.

  • Craigtoun is a lovely big park with enough going on to keep all of the family happy. Kids will enjoy the play areas, trampolines and boats. The cafe is really good too with several sweet and savoury dishes. I'd recommend the hot chocolate when you finish the parkrun on a Saturday morning.

  • Loved it. A beautiful walk on a nice day. Quite cheap for kids if you buy the day band. Loads of space for picnics and let the kids run off some steam. Will be back.

  • Lovely large well kept park near St Andrews. Great for all the family with plenty to do for kids of all ages. Plenty of free amenities with further paid for attractions at certain times of the year. Cafe selling snacks and meals. Park is run by volunteers so donations are very welcome - it's worth paying for.
