Sauchope Links Caravan Park Crail, Fife, Scotland, KY10 3XJ (Location map)

3.0 stars out of 4 reviews

Open all year

Sauchope Links Caravan Park is a Largo Leisure run holiday park on the east coast of Scotland, open all year round.

If you want to visit Scotland on your camping and caravan holidays, this could be your perfect destination, with wonderful views around every corner.

Caravans, motorhomes and RVs are all welcome to pitch at Sauchope Links Caravan Park, with electric only and fully serviced pitches available. Please note that trailer tents aren't allowed. Tents up to 1.6m x 3.0m for up to two people can be accommodated.

Site facilities are very good, with a shower, toilet and laundry block that also has provision for disabled guests. There is a campers kitchen with a sink, a microwave, a toaster and electric hobs, plus an on-site shop that stocks your everyday essentials.

When it is time to unwind, take a dip in the park's heated swimming pool (the opening hours depend on the weather) and let the kids tire themselves out in the playground – or in the indoor play area if the weather isn't great, where they can enjoy table tennis and pool.

Maybe you'd like to hire some self catering accommodation, in which case there are some luxury holiday lodges at Sauchope Links Caravan Park of varying sizes. With large lounges and kitchens, TVs and decking areas, these well equipped lodges have all you could need – and pillows and duvets are included.

Alternatively, you could book a stay in one of the site's two- or three-bedroom, self catering holiday caravans. Comfortably furnished and fitted with everything you could need, this might be your ideal holiday base.

Finally, how about renting a micro lodge? Each sleeps four and they are comfortable, well insulated but lower budget options, so you can still have a fantastic and memorable holiday without breaking the bank. With the nearby campers kitchen and the site's amenities block, you'll have all you need, plus each micro lodge has electric power points, electric lights and heating, outside seating and a TV. A more simple but no less enjoyable option.

Sauchope Links Caravan Park is only a 20-minute drive from the small, famous and historic town of St Andrews, home to the oldest university in Scotland. And as well as The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews which is internationally renowned, The Duke's Golf Course, St Andrews Bay Golf Course, Kingsbarns Golf Links and Crail Golfing Society are all close by, so if you enjoy golf you're very well served.

The small town of Anstruther is about a 15-minute drive from this campsite, home to the Scottish Fisheries Museum, while Dundee is a 45-minute drive away, Kirkcaldy is just under an hour's drive away and it will take you an hour and quarter to drive to Perth.

Visit Dundee and the city has much to explore, including Monikie Country Park, Broughty Castle, Camperdown Country Park and Discovery Point. This university city is definitely worth a day out if you're staying at Sauchope Links Caravan Park on your camping, motorhome and caravan holidays in Scotland.

  We appreciate your frustration regarding customers not abiding to the park rules. Please understand that July is our busiest period and unfortunately we don’t always have the time to enforce them. We would be grateful if customers inform us about any problems and concerns they might have. All problems are resolved immediately. I would like to bring to your attention to a few things you mentioned.

Dogs off the leads we take very seriously and owners are told to keep them on leads at all times while on park.

Cars are permitted to park on the door side only if they don’t have awning. If they have an awning the car should be parked in a sensible spot that won’t intrude on anyone else.


Two cars are permitted per pitch at an extra charge. This is only possible as long as they don’t cause any inconvenience to any other customers.

The freezer that you bought the meat from is managed by the butcher. Since then we have informed the butcher and now the freezer is checked on weekly basis.

In Regards to your comment about the shop we only stock items that sell e.g. sweets, soft drinks, ice cream etc. With two very well stocked shops in Crail being only a few minutes walk from the holiday park we can’t compete with them on price and choice.

We value all our customers and we hope this hasn’t put you off visiting us again.


Kind regards
Glyn Roberts
Park Manager

We stayed at this site for two weeks from July 19th through to August 2nd. The views were beautiful, and the site well maintained and laid out, but we were very disappointed with the size of our pitch. For the amount that we paid, (£25 per night) we expected a larger pitch than we got. We had a serviced pitch which cost extra, but were forever seeing other people using our water tap, and WASHING THEIR FEET under it a couple of times!! There were rules that we abided by, but others didn`t , and nothing was done about it. One rule was that only one car was allowed per pitch, we saw several with 2 cars, one with 3. Dogs had to be on a lead at all times, but someone opposite us quite happily let hers run about unfettered, albeit on their pitch, but still against the rules, by my reckoning. Cars were not to be parked on the door side of the vans,but on the other side or across the end of the van, but we saw several parked facing the caravan doors. Granted it didn`t affect our holiday much, but if there are site rules, with the threat of being ordered off the site if they are not adhered to, then someone should enforce said rules. On the one occasion that I bought something at the site shop (shop, that`s a laugh!!), it was a pack of beefburgers made by a local butcher. When I came to cooking them the following day, I just by chance spotted the date on the pack, which incidentally had been handed to me by the man in reception, I didn`t pick it out myself, the date said 9-3-10!! I took them back and they were exchanged, no quibbles, but I hope nobody else bought any that old and ate them! All in all, Sauchope is a beautiful site that could be so much better, with just a bit of thought.

Beautiful view and friendly staff......really nice park. The only thing I wasn't happy about was the speed limit.....which was 10mph but hardly anyone observed it. The staff whizzed around in their buggies and even the cement mixer and tractors were too fast (there was building work). I couldn't relax and let my two girls run around and play on their bikes.

Just returned from this park. Have been here several times before and always really enjoyed the park, views and Crail. This time the weather was not as good. New people also run the site. On two occasions the electricity cut out when using nothing more than tv and caravan heating!!! That meant 1 night without any electricity as wardens do not attend at night (understandable as it was 23.30 when we called) Also pool closed 2 out of the 3 days, even when not raining, which was disappointing as although cloudy, kids enjoy pool. Big disappointment on final day when sun shining and pool open, we were told that even to stay on a further 30 mins would incur £5 fee-would have been more than happy to pay if we were staying on for an hour or more, but for 30 mins, it seemed a bit excessive as this was first time the pool was open all weekend. Otherwise, wardens friendly and quick to sort problems during office hours. A fantastic site to chill and enjoy. Sauchope Links Caravan Park, Fife, Scotland
