Some travel advice from our friends at StAnza, Scotland's International Poetry Festival.

If you're travelling to St Andrews avoid the roadworks/diversion at Guardbridge if possible.

Alternatives coming from south or west are to come via Leven/Largoward or Cupar/Pitscottie - or to allow extra time.

Revised bus timetables from Leuchars seem to suggest it takes an extra 10 minutes but best to allow a bit longer, especially at rush hours.
