About the trail

Enjoy an engaging hike through changing landscapes from Fife’s industrial south to the rural north. The Fife Coast Path explores an area of low cliffs and rocky bays, grass-tufted dunes and picturesque fishing villages. Glimpse grey seals basking on the rocks just off the shore, and count the abundant reminders of Scotland’s rich history, including the caves with prehistoric paintings, the castles and the old watch houses, to name but a few.

Between the many thriving little ports along the trail, the path explores a large part of Fife’s coastline, with plenty of beachside walking and scenic views over historic ruins to enjoy.

We offer multiple holiday options along this trail. If you wish to experience the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.

Mr Nagy, USA
“A lovely walk through varied countryside. Good food and B&B. Bags arrived as expected at all stops. This walk is relatively flat and has lovely coastal scenery. Visiting St Andrews is worthwhile.”
Mrs Menzies, UK
“A superb walk; the arrangements all went well. The B&Bs were excellent, amongst the best that I have ever used. I had a query with accommodation for the Saturday night, but only noticed at mid-day on that day. It was gratifying that a member of staff was still available by phone on a Saturday and the query was clarified quickly and efficiently.”
Mr Hadfield, UK
“Excellent organisation and information pack provided, and extremely impressed with quality of accommodation booked for us.”
