Directions

Only 58 miles from Edinburgh (the Scottish Capital), 10 miles from St Andrews (the home of golf) and 5 miles from Dundee (the City of Discovery), Sandford House is situated just off the A92 Kirkcaldy to Dundee Road.

If arriving from the South take the left turning for Wormit, by the sign for Sandford House then almost immediately turn left up our tree lined drive, if you reach the roundabout you have passed the turn off to the left.

If arriving from the North, after crossing the Tay Bridge, drive straight on through three roundabouts on the A92. Take first right after the five roads roundabout, then almost immediately turn left into our tree lined drive and continue on until you arrive at a large car park. The lower car park is useful for dropping off luggage on your arrival but we ask that guests use the upper car park for everyday car parking where there is parking for over 30 cars.
