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.
Who's ready for StAnza, Scotland's International Poetry Festival?
StAnza 2016 will take place from 2nd – 6th March at various venues around St Andrews.
