You can take the train from Edinburgh (with an H) to Leuchars, the closest train stop and bus into St Andrews from there.

Takes less than an hour and a half.

Bit far for a day trip to Texas.

You can get a bus from the main bus station in Edinburgh to St Andrews direct no change

or train to Leuchers then 4 mile bus trip to St Andrews that will probably be the Quickest

I have taken both modes of transport. Since your time is limited you should take the train, as the bus takes almost twice as long.

What are you hoping to do in St Andrews? You won't have daylight late into the evening in April. The bus is simplist, but if you can afford a private tour guide, that would afford you most flexibility.

A number of tour operators off one-day tours from Edinburgh to St Andrews. Most also include the quaint villages of the East Neuk of Fife too.

If you go to St. Andrews on Sunday, the Old Course is closed for play but the public can walk the course if you'd like. That would be special if your husband is a golf fanatic!
