Will be traveling from Edinburgh to St. Andrew's in mid July, best option for getting there?
Car hire or rental? 4 adults, 4 bags, 2 sets of clubs. Suggestions? Thanks for your help.
Anybody been to the Boreland Lodge Hotel in Inverkeithing? I'd like to know if this is a good place to stay for a few nights.
I'll be visiting Fife shortly and I'd very much like to go out onto the Abertay Sands that stretch out eastwards at low tide from the northeast corner of Fife by Tentsmuir Forest. Trouble is, I can't find any info about how big a window of opportunity there is between high tides to walk out on the sands and back without getting cut off by the incoming tide (and also I don't know how long after each high tide you have to allow before the sands become accessible).
I phoned the Forest office at Tentsmuir but they were disinclined to feed me any facts, for the simple reason that plenty of jackasses go out onto the sands each year (to see the seals who haul out there) only to get cut off by the incoming tide because they haven't done their homework in advance. The office just doesn't want to give advice, because obviously they don't want to be held accountable if people follow their advice only to have things go wrong.
Does anyone reading this board know about access to the Abertay Sands? Or know anyone living round Tayport/Guardbridge/St Andrews who can feed me the facts?
Many thanks for your help.
We will be homebased in Edinburgh for 5 nts(november) and are trying to figure out 2 day trips by train.
One thought would be: St. Andrews (leuchars) and perhaps beyond?? Would this train go over the Forth Railway Bridge. which I have read should not be missed...? what other city might be reached on this same day?
Second day trip: how about heading to Stirling returning via Glasgow back to Edinburgh.
Your thoughts re: time, distances, whats to see etc?? Would like to hop off, a bit of food, drink, shop and then continue on... any suggestions??
Does anyone have any idea on what's the most efficient way to travel from Edinburgh City Centre to Braco, Perthshire? Will taking a taxi be too expensive? Thanks in advance!
Thinking of going to see the Fife Flyers if I'm in the area......
