Welcome to the Lade Braes

The Lade Braes is a popular public footpath in St Andrews, Fife, Scotland which follows the route of an old mill lade with a history stretching back to the middle ages. The walk is about 1.5 miles (2.5 km) long and runs from Little Carron on Hepburn Gardens to Lade Braes Lane at Madras College.

Our aim at LadeBraes.net is to provide a comprehensive central resource for all things related to the Lade Braes. Here you will find photos, articles and a history of the lade and the water mills which once worked here.

We are always looking for new information to add to the site, so if you have any old photos, suggestions or even amendments, please get in touch.
