Fife Coastal Path: Newport-on-Tay to Newburgh

The final stage of the Fife Coastal Path contrasts sharply with the rest of the route, soon leaving the coast to climb through the fields, woods and hills of northern Fife via farm and forestry tracks and old paths. This long stretch eventually descends to the small town of Newburgh.


Farm and forest tracks, minor roads, some rougher sections of path. A fair amount of ascent and descent.

Public Transport

Buses serve both Newport-on-Tay and Newburgh.
