Coastal Walks

Fife is blessed with the excellent coastal path stretching for 117 miles from Kincardine to Newburgh.

This section of the site provides suggestions for walks encompassing parts of the path. Most routes are circular in nature so that you end up back at your start point. This alleviates the need to co-ordinate with public transport if doing a linear walk. The middle (original) section of the Fife Coastal Path does have good transport connections should you prefer to do a linear walk and there is a lot of information available on the web for suggested walks. This website aims to provide something a little different from the linear walks.
