Fife Coastal Path
This walk runs along the attractive Fife coast from Kincardine Bridge to Newburgh. You'll pass through a series of delightful coastal towns and villages with lovely beaches, pretty harbours and interesting history.
Highlights on the route include the wonderful university town of St Andrews where you'll pass the famous links golf course. There's also the picturesque harbour at Crail and Anstruther where you can enjoy refreshments at the excellent Anstruther Fish Bar. The shop has won the 'Best Fish and Chip Shop' in Scotland accolade on four occasions in the last six years.
The historic fishing village of Pittenweem is another gem on the trail. Highlights in the village include the artisan chocolatiers, 17th century buildings, fine shops, galleries and the ancient St Fillan's Cave.
Between St Andrews and Tayport you'll pass the expansive Tentsmuir Forest. The forest has a number of walking and cycling trails with red squirrels and roe deer to look out for on the way.
