Edinburgh to St Andrews

We are staying in Edinburgh but want to take a day trip to St Andrews to visit the Old Course. Can anyone recommend the best/cheapest/fastest/easiest way to get there?

Thank you!

1. Re: Edinburgh to St Andrews

Cheapest and probably best would be the X59 Stagecoach bus, which runs between St Andrews and Edinburgh bus station and takes about 1hr 50mins, they are nice buses and there is one every hour departing Edinburgh at 20 min to the hour. There is a train from Edinburgh to Leuchars (1hr 20 min), which is a few miles from St Andrews and take a taxi to St Andrews.

Not many other choices

You can also take a train to Leuchars and continue by bus to St A, on a combined ticket.
