We write lots of guides about Fife because there are so many excellent places to visit in the county - from St Andrews to Crail, Fife is packed with lovely towns and villages which are just a stone's throw from Edinburgh.
We think that walking along the Fife Coastal Path is the best way to see the county in all its glory. This 117 mile route takes you through some of the prettiest and most historically interesting locations in all of Scotland. We wanted to publish a guide about this route for anyone planning to walk along it in 2023, let's get into it:
Where does the Fife Coastal Path start and end?
The Fife Coastal Path is approximately 117 miles long and typically starts in Kincardine and ends in Newburgh. It's a coastal route so actually misses out a number of towns and cities inland that you might wish to explore in Fife such as Dunfermline (the abbey there is very special).
