Sea, beach, land graphicFife Coastal Path

185 km / 115 miles

Fife
The extended Fife Coast Path keeps mainly to the shore between the Kincardine Bridge and Newburgh. It includes numerous castles, fishing villages, remarkable rock formations, caves and long sandy beaches. The coast is a haven for bird life and flora. Apart from the exposed Elie Chainwalk, carved steps with chains, at Kincraig Point, the walking is easy, though times of high tide are best avoided in some places as the walk uses the foreshore.
