This new edition of the popular guidebook has many route updates and fresh photos, but is lighter, more pocketable and more rainproof than ever. The Fife Coastal Path runs around the coastline of eastern Scotland for 117 miles (187 km) from Kincardine on the Forth to Newburgh on the Tay.
Starting west of the magniﬁcent Forth bridges, the route heads towards the villages of Fife’s East Neuk (corner), with their rich tradition of smuggling and ﬁshing. After rounding Fife Ness, the route follows the coastline through St Andrews, golf capital of the world and former religious centre of Scotland.
Fife has long played an important part in Scottish history and the route passes many castles, towers and churches. There are splendid views along the coast and over the Firths of Forth and Tay, with great chances to sight seabirds, seals and dolphins. The villages have welcoming pubs, famous ﬁsh-and-chip shops and good B&Bs. Transport by train and bus makes for easy access throughout.
The guidebook contains everything you need to plan and enjoy your holiday on foot or bike:
• details of each section showing distance, side-trips and food/drink stops
• background on history, landscapes and wildlife
• planning information for travel by bus, train, car and plane
• lavishly illustrated, with 100 colour photographs
• 16 pages of detailed mapping of the route at 1:45,000
