Our other favorite route in St. Andrews is along Lade Braes Walk, a historic public footpath that runs past several parks and skirts several golf courses. The path starts in central St. Andrews and heads south for 3.5 miles to Craigtoun Country Park. Note: the southern direction is a gradual uphill.
Start at the University of St. Andrews, and run south through the campus on a path called The Long Walk, picking up Lade Braes Walk at Queen’s Terrace & Wesvtview. Run south on Lade Braes Walk, which follows the Kinness Burn (narrow river), passing Cockshaugh Public Park and the 18-acre St Andrews Botanic Garden. At the ~2-mile mark is Hallow Hill, where you can get the lungs going with its hilly paths and fields. Continue south for ~1 mile along a partially wooded section, passing the St Andrews for Golf club. You’ll reach Craigtoun Country Park, where there are additional paths and an amusement park.
Add-Ons: Additional paths within the University, and in the parks. Can also connect to our St. Andrews Waterfront route at the University.
