St Andrews

Suggested days out from Glasgow and Edinburgh by train

As well as being the home of Golf, the attractive town of St Andrews boasts a university, miles of coastal walking, and an attractive town well worth strolling round. Unfortunately there’s no direct rail connection – it closed back in the 1960s. But you can take an hourly train from Edinburgh to nearby Leuchars, where a bus connection (freedom of Scotland passes are valid) will take you the rest of the way. Passengers from Glasgow should travel via Edinburgh.

Journey time from Edinburgh to Leuchars – around one hour. Bus from Lechars to St Andrews – around twenty minutes.
