Covering 117 miles across some of the most beautiful scenery you are ever likely to see, the Fife Coastal Path is a walk lover’s dream.
Many people flock to Fife to walk the full thing over the course of a week whilst others prefer to pick a section and spend a day walking it.
If wildlife is your thing you can often spot a diverse range of animals including dolphins and puffins as you make your way along the path. The walk has various level methods of difficulty so it is worth researching before jumping in.
