We’ve walked a few sections now, all beautiful and all different. Crail to Anstruther took a couple of hours- much of this route is unpaved and can be slippy if there’s been rain so make sure you have decent footwear. It also feels like the...More

Glad you enjoyed our wonderful Fife Coastal Path, we reccomend walkers wear sturdy footwear and appropriate clothing. Some sections are quite exposed with rough paths.
