We walked from Elie to Anstruther on the most beautiful day. A well marked path, stunning scenery and a perfect chippie at the end in the world famous Anstruther Fish and Chip Restaurant. Who could ask for more.

Did the path between Crail and St Andrews and really enjoyed it. The terrain is quite rugged in parts, with a lot of the path eroded following the winter but lots of seabirds to spot and lovely beaches to walk through, so would definitely recommend...More

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.
