Low lying coastal areas meet rocky outcrop, nature reserve, forest and the inevitable odd tarmac path and pavement. The path takes in a succession of historic sites, running through wildlife conservation areas and long stretches of sand as well as rugged northern coast. The route is mainly low-lying, however poor weather conditions can make some sections more challenging.
The path out of North Queensferry meets quarry, beach and bay as well as patches of woodland along the route to Burntisland. Over tarmac through Kirkaldy to woodland and shoreline paths, Ravenscraig and Macduff Castle are along the way. As you navigate the clifftops over Kincraig point, your route narrows in on the fishing village between Leven, Elie and Crail. After leaving Loch Fife, the route crosses rugged coast before finishing at St. Andrews

We are regular long-distance walkers. Fife was new to us. Length of walk suited the time and dates we had available. Stunning scenery, interesting villages, friendly locals, great time of year for wildlife and wonderful weather. Well maintained and signed path. Anon. - June 2019
I most enjoyed the scenery, walking on beaches, the seals and the birch. R.C. - August 2018
