Best for Kids

St Andrews and the East Neuk of Fife is bursting with things to do for children of all ages. From babies to teenagers, come rain or shine (hopefully shine!) you will never be stuck for ways to entertain your kids. Here at Kingask, we have families staying with us all year round and like to put together a list of ‘things to do’ for them during their stay. Below are our recommended top 5 kid friendly places and activities in St Andrews and the East Neuk…we promise they won’t get bored, and neither will you.


Craigtoun Park

Located just outside St Andrews, this four-star visitor attraction is bursting with fun for the whole family. Crazy golf, bouncy castles, boating lake, and pedal cars to name but a few. There are lots of free activities also including a big adventure play area and trampolines. You will struggle not to fill a whole day at Craigtoun. Even if you managed to get a spare moment to relax then there is a café too.

If that wasn’t enough, Craigtoun Park holds a country fair which is taking place on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July 2016. Be prepared to have a fun filled active day involving storytelling, children’s entertainment, falconry and a craft tent. To top it all off the park has free parking. Why not visit St Andrews for the whole weekend and stay at our gorgeous property on Kilrymont Road, sleeps 4, with private parking and accepts dogs.


The Scottish Deer Centre

Located in Cupar, The Scottish Deer Centre is no more than 20 minutes’ drive from St Andrews, and don’t worry if you do not have a car, there is a regular bus service between St Andrews and Cupar.  Covering 55 acres of Fife Countryside, the centre provides an interactive education for all ages into 14 different species of Deer, Fife’s only wolf pack, otters and lots more! There is also an adventure playground and indoor play area too. It is a one off experience and a fantastic day for the animal lovers in the family. Bring a big group and stay at our 14 person Howard Place property, a superb house to have all the family under one roof.


St Andrews Aquarium

Nestled on St Andrews’ recognisable north facing cliffs, with stunning views of the famous west sands and St Andrews Bay, this is one of the finest coastal locations in the historic town. All the family can enjoy seeing lobsters to seahorses, piranhas to sharks, and getting involved in daily interactive demonstrations. Once you have finished in the Aquarium then you are just a short stroll to West Sands beach – a gorgeous, wide expanse of sand, uninterrupted for 2 miles lined by dunes and the world famous golf course. Why not wake up to the smell of the salt water and stay at our property on The Scores, sleeping 8 with unrivalled views.


Secret Bunker

Scotland kept it a secret for 40 years but now is your turn to visit the Secret Bunker in Troywood, outside St Andrews. Hidden 100 feet underground, journey through a 450 foot tunnel, under a Scottish Farmhouse, through blast doors to discover the secrets of the bunker, built during the Cold War to help safeguard Scotland in case of nuclear attack. An exciting exploration to learn a bit more about Scotland’s history. Stay in our gorgeous nearby cottage in Kingsbarns, West Kilduncan – sleeps 6 and accepts dogs.


St Andrews Treasure Trail

An absolutely fantastic way to spend a couple of hours with the children in St Andrews is your very own self-guided spy mission themed treasure trail! Ideal chance to learn a bit more about the historic town whilst walking through the old streets of St Andrews. Starting at West Sands beach, the trail is roughly 2 miles long which you can complete at your own pace.
