After spending 2 nights in St Andrews, I will be driving to Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival (August 2013). I would appreciate your suggestions about my 5-7 hour drive/visit itinerary from St Andrews to Edinbuirgh. Will be leaving St Andrews at about 9.30am and would like to be in Edinburgh at 4.30pm. I will be accompanied by my wife and 2 teenage girls.
My first stop will be at the Secret Bunker, Crown Buildings, Troywood Fife, St. Andrews KY16 8QH. Although not sure about this attraction, I'm planning a 1hr 30min visit in this place.
From there, we will drive to High street Crail, where we will walk to Crail Harbour and spend about 30 minutes looking around.
My next stop will be at Anstruther and after walking around, we will stop to try some fish & chips from Anstruther Fish & Chips Bar 42-44 Shore St, Anstruther KY10 3AQ (Heard good comments about this fish&chips bar). We're planning to stay for about 30-45 minutes in total at the harbourside.
From there we will drive to Cove Wynd, Pittenweem, Anstruther KY10 2LE, and might visit St Fillan’s Cave area & the harbour. We will stay for about 30 minutes.
After Pittenweem, we will drive past St. Monans, Elie, and Earlsferry Fife (should I stop at any of these places or just drive by?).
My next stop will be at Main street, Lower Largo where we will stop for around 30 to 45 min for a walk around main steet and the harbour.
Our final stop will be at Dunfermline where we will stop for about an hour and visit Guildhall street, and Mercat Cross area.
From there, we will drive to Forth Road Bridge, Forth Rd Bridge South Queensferry EH30 9SF and keep driving to Edinburgh centre.
Does the above itinerary make sense or does it have too much stops and is the time allocation enough or should it be more? Please delete or include other places that we should visit during our drive.
