Start the walk along Low Causeway passing old cottages, turning right, then left to reach Craigflower House (a previous school now converted to flats). Walk around the front of the house and through the gate on the left onto the tarmac driveway. At a lamp post on the right hand side is a path into the woods. The path is not immediately obvious from the road unless you are looking for it.

Follow this path into the woods keeping to the main path when minor paths join it. Stay in the woods avoiding going through gaps in the wall to the coastal path. After about 0.75 km of walking through pleasant woodland a wall with a doorway is reached. Follow the path through the doorway and turn left onto the tarmac path.

Follow the path as it bends round to the right to reach the ruin of Old Crombie Parish Church and graveyard. From the church continue onwards onto what becomes a farm / access track. After another 0.75 km turn right at a junction with a quiet public road.

Walk down this road to the houses at Crombie Point and turn right onto Shore Road. (following the cycle track sign). This is another tarmac access road for various houses and the occasional vehicle may be encountered. This section of the walk is part of the Fife Coastal Path and returns to Torryburn after about 1.75 km.
