Craigtoun Miniature Railway
Hello everyone, good to speak to you all again!
We’ve been very busy here at the Hotel today getting ready for the Duck Hunt tomorrow. It will be fantastic welcoming you all into the Hotel tomorrow and I can’t wait to see the photos of Robbie on his holidays with you!
Craigtoun Country Park sits right next door to our beautiful heathland golf course The Duke’s just two miles out of St Andrews. So I was thrilled when I heard about the reopening of the miniature railway at Craigtoun Country Park and I just had to share it with you.
Peter Bryant of MRW Railways has been working with Fife Council to introduce a replacement Denver & Rio Grande steam outline locomotive as well as upgrading the track throughout the park. With the introduction of the new railway system, beautiful flower gardens, picnic areas and adventure play area Craigtoun Country Park looks set to be a cracking family day out!
Entry to Craigtoun Country Park is free however there is a small fee for the train ride; £1.50 per adult and £1.00 per child or a multi ride ticket costing £8.00 for 10 rides. For more information have a look at their website http://www.craigtounparkrailway.co.uk/
If you do make it along to the park then please do post your pictures on our Facebook page, in fact if you have any pictures of fun family days out around St Andrews then why not share them with us!
If you’re not in St Andrews then remember to check out our Facebook page for all the Duck Hunt clues, you never know there might be one near you! Everyone who finds a duck whether it’s here in our pond or in one of our 25 locations, can take him away on your holiday and post a picture on our Facebook page! All those who post their holiday snap on our Facebook page will be in with a chance of winning an amazing prize…two nights accommodation at the Hotel for your family, a helicopter ride over St Andrews, family golf lesson AND a family membership to National Trust for a whole year!
I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
