Craigtoun Meadows Holiday Park is a stunning five star holiday park close to the popular Scottish town of Saint Andrews. The park has a range of accommodation available for hire, including static holiday caravans to rent and a luxurious holiday lodge. There are also privately owned caravans on site. If you would like to buy a holiday caravan in Scotland, why not visit Craigtoun Meadows Holiday Park to see if you'd like to make this your permanent holiday retreat? Just enquire at the park about availability of holiday homes to buy.
The park also welcomes touring guests, with 54 hard standing pitches available for touring caravans and motorhomes, and two separate pitches for guests with tents. A small number of pitches have electric hook ups.
The owners of permanently sited holiday caravans can stay at the park as often as they wish to between 1 March and 30 January. This park has a holiday park licence, so owners cannot use their static caravans as their permanent residences. The park is open for caravan and lodge hire, tents, motorhomes and touring caravans from the middle of March until the end of October.
While the hired caravans and the holiday lodge are equipped with modern conveniences and appliances, there is a range of facilities offered for touring guests to ensure they enjoy the highest possible level of comfort during their stay, too.
The amenities block at Craigtoun Meadows Holiday Park includes toilets, baths, showers, and a washing up area.
Around the park there is plenty for guests to do. A large children’s play area is complemented by a multi-sports court that sees plenty of fun as well as competition throughout the year. The park putting green is great for all guests, and is a favourite among those who aren’t planning to head out and play “real golf” in this area.
There are two games rooms at the park, between them boasting video games, an air hockey table, table football, and two pool tables. A friendly coffee shop and restaurant is also found at the park, and is open for breakfast and dinner. Takeaway options are also provided in the early evening for guests looking to eat in their caravan, tent, or lodge.
A short drive takes guests into the centre of St Andrews, where they will find everything from quirky shops, tea rooms, and restaurants to museums and other cultural attractions. The town is perhaps most famous for its world class golf course, which can be seen from the roadside and even be played by golfing guests staying at the park.
Outside of the town there is miles of coastal walks and countryside trails to explore, while a number of clean and safe beaches are also worth exploring.
A scenic drive to the north takes guests across the River Tay and into the popular city of Dundee. Dundee offers a taste of modern life in Scotland for guests preferring this to the traditional style of St. Andrews and the surrounding villages. Tourists have the option of leaving the car behind and taking public transport into Dundee. The trip from St Andrews takes under an hour.

This gem of a site stands on the B939, just a couple of minutes drive away from the centre of St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland. Alternatively, the local bus service stops directly opposite to the entrance to the site.
On arrival, we were greeted warmly and were impressed by the standards of the main amenity block and reception. The site has a mix of both statics and touring caravan pitches. The beautiful surroundings and gardens are mature and well tended, and all are well-spaced, allowing privacy for all visitors. The touring vans have their own area, away from the static caravans, giving a feeling of a site which is dedicated to tourers, though all static caravan areas are beautifully kept.
Gently sloping, all touring pitches are of a good size with a well kept gravel hardstanding surrounded by neatly cut grass and all have their own 16 amp electric hook up, water and drainage point. Three different grades of pitch afford choice for visitors ranging from the standard sized pitch at £21 per night up to the patio pitch at £27.50 per night. The patio pitches are large in size with a small summer house, which is ideal for storing bicycles or equipment. These tend to be on the perimeter of the park and also have a patio area with a garden table and four chairs, which is a nice touch.
Many of the pitches are screened by mature bushes and shrubs. During our visit, the many apple, pear and plum trees on site were bearing their fruits and were available to pick, which we felt was a really nice advantage. It seems that much thought has been given to the planting of the site to add interest.
The washroom facilites at Craigtoun Meadows are outstanding. There is a good number of unisex spacious showers and also two full sized bathrooms, all with an endless supply of hot water. A washroom for the disabled is also provided. Additionally, each private toilet area has its own basin too. This facility is open 24 hours per day and is heated, exceptionally clean and is centrally accessible for all touring pitches. This has to be one of the best wash room facilities we have found in several years of touring.
Facilities for children include a small play area, outdoor table tennis, separate area for ball games and a games room, which is located in the main amenity block, therefore away from the touring pitches. A launderette and information room are also located at the main amenity block, and basic items can be bought.
Subject to opening times according to the season, there is also a small coffee shop / licenced restaurant on site. We didn't use this as it was a particularly quiet time during our visit, but it was due to open again over the weekend period. A word of note though, the restaurant does not accept debit / credit card payment types.
A holiday in St. Andrews is a great experience for families or couples. The site is a perfect base to enjoy all that Fife has to offer, including countryside and Scottish National Trust or the beautiful and unspoilt coastal fishing villages. Of course, some of the countries' best golf courses can be found here too - a must for any enthusiast. A little further afield are the attractive cities of Edinburgh across the Forth road bridge and Dundee and Perth with easy access across the Tay road bridge. St. Andrews itself is a most attractive town, with plenty to do here without having lost its charm. The University of St. Andrews can be found in various locations around the town alongside plenty of shops, some of which are from the larger chains and also many more quirky, individual ones. Coffee shops, bars and restaurants are also in abundance, which provide a good choice for the discerning visitor. Despite its popularity with American visitors and the infamous golf tournament, prices in St. Andrews remain reasonable.
This was my fist visit to stay in Fife. I would have no hesitation in recommending both the resort and Craigtoun Meadows as a fantastic place to stay. Add some beautiful sunny weather and the hospitality of the Scottish people and you have a great holiday experience - try it, you won't be disappointed!

What a great site.
All pitches are nicely spaced, with stone chippings marking the areas to park.
Every pitch has its own electricity, water and drainage next to pitch.
Toilets/Shower/Bath house very clean and large.
I could go on forever, will definately return!

What a great site.
Lovely well tended setting, with roomy pitches.
Shower/toilet block immaculate. Baths available - great for our young children.
Kids play facilities excellent - two great big spaces with good equipment, including a flying fox, which provided hours of fun. Craigtoun park is just next door, and St Andrews a short drive.
On site restaurant had good home cooked meals, at reasonable prices.
The staff were really friendly and very helpful.
