Walking the Fife Coastal Path
When I moved to Fife in 2014, I found that I was living only a few hundred yards from part of the Fife Coastal Path - an official long distance path covering a shade over 116 miles from Kincardine to Newburgh. Fife has been famously described (by James VI of Scotland) as a "beggar's mantle fringed with gold", and the path essentially traverses the whole of this golden fringe. I decided to set myself the goal of walking the path. Not all in the one go, not even in a contiguous group of days, but over a period of a year or two, as time, energy, and inclination allowed.
On this site I record the walks and share some of the many photographs taken. My site does not attempt to provide any directions or to act as a guide for others undertaking the walk - there are many good maps and guides available to do that, and the path is generally well sign-posted. Also, although there is no attempt to comprehensively review cafes along the way, I do mention where I have stopped for refreshments (and for me one of the good things about these walks is that there is almost always somewhere to get a decent coffee).
The coastal path is one I would recommend to other walkers - the scenery is varied, and although some parts of the path are away from the coast and sometimes a bit dull, there is always something worthwhile just around the corner
