Fife coastal path


The Fife Coastal Path stretches from North Queensferry in the south stretching for 150 kms to the Tay Bridge in the north. Each corner holds another secret for you to discover, historic castles and caves, quaint fishing villages and award winning beaches.

With rugged cliffs, long sandy beaches, internationally important estuaries and wildlife reserves, walking the Fife Coastal Path is an experience not to be missed!

A range of walking abilities is catered for, from the extremely level and easy to the more challenging! Whether young or old there is something for everyone. The Fife Coastal Path can be done in short bite-sized chunks or as a long distance route. The route is clearly waymarked at appropriate points, making navigation simple.

As the route snakes around the coastline of Fife, you can walk from village to village, experience dramatic cliffs, distinctive rock formations, long sandy beaches, picturesque fishing harbours and grass tufted sand dunes. For nature lovers the Fife Coastal Path is a real walk on the ‘wild side’. Watch seals basking in the sun, and look out for dolphins as they play off the coast. Listen to the seabirds as they soar above the waves, smell the fresh sea air and feel the real sense of freedom!
