This is the remotest part of the Fife Coast Path, heading from picturesque Crail and around the headland of Fife Ness. Some sections are impassable at high tide. This is a one-way walk; return is possible by bus. Keen walkers can double the length of the walk by continuing from Kingsbarns to St Andrews.


Signed coastal path. The route is rough going at times, on rocky shore or alongside. NOTE: tidal route, some sections cannot be walked at high tide so it is worth checking tide times before setting out.
