Fife Coastal Walks
Stretching for over 117 miles from the Firth of Forth to the Firth of Tay, the Fife Coastal Path provides an unparalleled walking experience. From the panoramic sea views to the small, secluded beaches you discover along the way, it’s truly spectacular.
Whether you fancy a short stroll along the coast or hours’ worth of exploring, you can make your walk as long or as short as you like. You can hop on and off the path, which is well signed throughout its entirety. The trail you follow is broken up by award winning beaches and world-renowned golf courses. There’s even some very popular eateries along the way, including the Cheesy Toast Shack at both East Sands in St Andrews and Kingsbarns beach. In Crail, the Lobster Shack sits nestled on its harbour, which is the most pictured harbour in the UK.
There is an interactive map online which clearly highlights where the coastal path is located, as well as a variety of walking routes which are all graded to make choosing which route to take as straightforward as possible. Each section of the path on the map specifies the distance and approximate time it would take to complete.
The Fife Coastal Path passes through the popular seaside town of Elie, where one of the most unique walks in Scotland is located. The Elie Chain walk offers something a little different to your average coastal walk, weaving in between rocks, cliff tops and caves.
