Kingsbarns to St Andrews

A lovely section of the Fife Coast Path, with unspoilt beaches, rocky shore, and an inland section along riverside and over farmland. NOTE: There is a tidal section near the Buddo Rock, approximately two-thirds of the way along, that is not possible at high tide - check tide times before setting out. This is a one-way walk; return is possible by bus.


Clear path, sometimes muddy, many short steep sections, straightforward rock step on coast. NOTE: tidal route, some sections cannot be walked at high tide.
