The Fife Coastal Path runs from the Forth Estuary in the south to the Tay Estuary in the north for a distance of 117 miles, bringing walkers past pretty villages, along award-winning beaches, over rugged cliffs and even to the origin of modern golf in St Andrews!
The substantial route offers a wonderful experience for walkers of all abilities. Those who like to be put through their paces will relish the challenging section between Lower Largo and Pittenween, which takes in the Elie Chain Walk, and those out for a more leisurely stroll will enjoy the North Queenferry to Burntisland stage.
There is so much to see on this walk, the second longest of Scotland’s Great Trails after the Southern Upland Way, from harbour seals and intriguing rock formations to the Forth Bridge and ancient university of St Andrews.
