Directions


Scenic route: from Edinburgh take the A921 coastal road to Kirkcaldy and the A955 to Lower Largo. Follow the signs towards St Andrews for approximately 4 miles then turn left for Peat Inn at the Stags Head pub, as you enter Largoward village. After approximately 2 miles, the road bends right as it enters Peat Inn village. Drive straight through the village with the Peat Inn Restaurant on your left. The road 'splits' at a small cottage as you go north: fork right, you will see Alba Yurts located on your right.

Quickest route: from the Forth Road Bridge, leave the M90 at Junction 3 and follow the A92 to Glenrothes, then take the A914 to Cupar/St Andrews. As you drive out of Cupar, with a park on your right, fork right, joining the B940, over a railway bridge and follow the road to Pitscottie. Go south, over the crossroads and continue for four miles, up the hill to the hamlet of Baldinnie. Keep going up to a straight stretch of road, until you reach a house and cottage on your left after some trees. Turn left (north) here for Strathkinness and follow the road for half a mile reaching Alba Yurts on your right.
