Craigtoun Country Park

by St Andrews

Originally laid out as parkland attached to Mount Melville House - the house itself is now part of the Dukes Golf Course - Craigtoun has been operated as a country park since 1947. Much of the formal design - including the avenue of Lawson Cypress, the Italian Garden and the much loved Dutch Village - are part of the original design.Craigtoun has a great deal to offer visitors of all ages. Younger visitors will enjoy the adventure playground, miniature railway, Crazy Golf, Putting, trampolines and bouncy castle, while older visitors will appreciate the formal gardens and the glasshouses. Everyone will enjoy a trip round the park in Puffing Billy and a cup of tea, ice dream or a full lunch in the warm and inviting cafe.
