The paid attractions are closed weekdays once school begins (the summer is over). We walked around the beautiful gardens, had tea and cake at the coffee/ice cream shop, and spent the rest of the time at the playground. Hide and seek, trampolines and slides. Even saw the actress who played Charlotte in Pride and Prejudice (the movie) - and no, we didn’t bother her at all...everyone deserves privacy.

Bit sad to see the castle on the lake so worn by time. Kids love those places...

Would return here again - it is free but a donation is always nice.

Went to Craigtoun not sure what to expect as the last time we visited years ago it was a bit neglected looking.
What a nice surprise. Free parking, lovely walks and lots of space for wee ones to run about. You can pay for tickets for mini train trips, boating etc. but that’s not essential for a fun day out.

We were looking for somewhere to go on our way back to Dunfermline from St Andrews. What a fabulous venue which was free to enter and free parking. Great scenery, Open areas, woodlands, flowers, lake. We went after the attractions closed but still enjoyed our visit. Very clean. Good play areas for kids including zip wire, trampolines, swings, slides, roundabout. Son really enjoyed it.

Would highly recommenced it.

Visited with my partner & our 3 children aged 9, 2 & 8 months. Most of the attractions have to be paid for if children are over 3. My 2 year old wanted to go on the bouncy castle which there was 2 of. One for older kids & one for younger (there was a height marker to determine which one the kids should go on). Whilst my 2 year old was on the bouncy castle he was joined by 3 children a lot bigger & who clearly should have been on the other one however the member of staff who was supervising the 2 castles didn’t intervene & allowed it to continue. One of those kids knocked into my son & this has caused a bruise to his head. My son couldn’t get passed the older kids to get off & I had to go on & rescue him. The maximum allowed on was 6 however there was 8 on at that time & given 3 were a lot bigger it was cramped & unsafe to say the least.
Next to the boats. When getting on I was told by one member of staff it was once round the lake whilst the other staff member told us twice. None of them could make their mind up.
As for wasps, they were out in abundance & very angry. If you don’t like them don’t go, certainly not at this time of the year!!!
To some these things might seem quite minor however when added up they put a bit of a dampener on a family day out.

Beautiful mature woodland and extensive play areas for kids. Trampolines, parks, little zip wire, trim trails, and paid boating. Free entry and parking so worth a look at for a peaceful retreat.
