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

The Fife Coastal Path covers a total distance of 117 miles so it can be quite hard to decide which part of the route to explore. However, being fairly familiar with the area, and having walked a few sections, in my opinion if you want...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

Did the walk from Cellardyke to Elie on a perfect winter day. Cloudless sky, no breeze, cold air. But we expected something better than a muddy path with a few directional signs! Only in a few spots was there evidence that this was indeed a...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.

I attempted cycling the section of the coastal path from Inverkeithing to St Andrews in September 2016, over two and a half days. No real problems as far as Leven but after that it gets progressively less suitable for cycling and the majority of the...More

Beautiful stretch of coastal path. View of the Forth Bridges and Incholm Island. Just stunning! Easily accessible from the Rail Halt or from the Bus Route. Weekends you can stop off at Dalgety Sailing Club for refreshments. Very welcoming indeed. 😀

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.

I think this would depend on how much of the path you are planning on walking and what the weather is like at the time. We both had waterproof walking shoes on which give good support, protect your feet if you step on sharp... More
