The Fife Pilgrim Way long distance path opened last Friday, July 5th.
Fife Coast and Countryside Trust secured funding in 2017 to create a new and inspiring long-distance route through beautiful inland Fife.
Starting at Culross and North Queensferry, the 104 km/64 mile path takes in spectacular views of the Highlands, the Coast, Forth and Tay Estuaries and the Lomond Hills. It passes medieval landmarks, industrial landscapes and historic picturesque villages on its way to St. Andrews.
The route uses Fife’s existing network of rights of way, paths and tracks to offer varied opportunities for long distance, multi-day route supplemented by shorter walks and circular routes.
As you progress along the route look out for the 8 orientation panels and nine cast iron footstep features and four stone rest points along the route.
Given the route is close to us, you can use the cottage as a base and complete a section (or several sections) during your stay. Grab a Thermos from the cupboard and enjoy the ramble!
