Directions to the camp site

If you are on foot, take the train to Cowdenbeath, then the 19, 19a or 19b bus to Crossgates, which runs multiple times an hour. From Crossgates the site is a 15 minute walk South along the Inverkeithing Road.

 

On Sunday there is an RMT strike affecting ScotRail trains. We have alternatives in place, see our website for details.

 

If you are arriving by bicycle on Friday or Saturday, we recommend using Cowdenbeath railway station as the journey is flatter, but Dalgety Bay is also suitable. The route is on moderately busy roads. Bear in mind we cannot take responsibility for cycles on site.

 

If you are driving, please drive through the gate and park in the field. Don’t park in the lane, the main road, or at the farm shop, as this will cause a nuisance.

 

If you are in the area and need a lift to the site, including from the bus stop, please text 07908 573 413.

Leaving Fife on Sunday

 

There is an RMT strike on Sunday affecting ScotRail trains. 

 

Instead we recommend heading out using the following:

  • People on foot take the 19 bus from Crossgates to Halbeith Park and Ride (if going to Edinburgh or West) or Cowdenbeath (if going North East) and then use the X54 and X59 coach service (see timetable). The coach is advertised as wheelchair accessible.

  • Cyclists should go to Halbeith Park and Ride (if going to Edinburgh or West) or Cowdenbeath (if going North East) and use the X54 and X59 coach service (see timetable). We have been told they will accept bicycles.

  • Cyclists looking for a longer adventure may enjoy going to Linlithgow where trains are running on Sunday. It is a strenuous 18 mile journey including crossing the Forth. Ask at the Welcome Tent for advice.
