the fife coast path

The Fife Coastal Path runs from the Forth Estuary in the south, to the Tay Estuary in the north and stretches for 117 miles.


The path is clearly waymarked and offers a range of walking experiences from the easy and level, to the wild and demanding. Whether done in bit sized chunks or as a long distance route there is definitely something for everyone. 

You can walk from the Posthouse west towards Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans & Elie or east to Fife Ness/Balcomie then north to St Andrews and beyond. North of St Andrews you’ll find Tentsmuir forest with the longest, broadest beach in Fife leading to the Tay estuary.

From the cosmopolitan atmosphere of St. Andrews to the former coal mining towns of central Fife; from the small fishing villages of the East Neuk to the bustling industrial areas of the west, rugged cliffs, award winning beaches, internationally important estuaries and wildlife reserves, walking the Fife Coastal Path is an experience not to be missed!
