Me and my hubby were walking from Queensferry to Kirkcaldy and we had a lovely time. Although the path went through housing estates and path was uneven. It was fun for a couple day out.😀

We walked Elie to Pitenweem. Easy walk but sturdy shoes advisable. Unbelievably the sun came out in April! Beautiful blue skies and turned the Forth a matching colour. Loads of interesting rock formations to interest any budding geologists. Ruins to explore at Elie and St...More

We were fortunate with wonderful weather when we were there. Overcast and 56 degrees F, well controlled winds. We hiked from Elie to Anstruther, which was a perfect distance considering the short daylight hours. We could have easily managed a further walk during the longer...More

Even on a cold windswept day the Fife coastal path provides good exercise but more importantly great views. The stretch along the Firth of Forth is picturesque, especially around the Largo area.

The Anstruther/Crail section took us about an hour and a half-decent footwear needed. St Monans/Anstruther took about an hour and is an easier path to follow.
