Burntisland to East Weymss

This is one of six planned linear walks over sections of the beautiful Fife Coastal Path.

Our walk today starts in the historic town of Burntisland, following the route from the Links at the eastern side of the town and along the road to Pettycur Bay and the pretty village of Aberdour. The route takes us along the coast to Kirkcaldy, passing the ruins of the 16th century Seafield Tower.

Once in Kirkcaldy we walk along the Promenade until we reach Ravenscraig Castle and shortly afterwards the picturesque harbour village of Dysart. We pass Frances Colliery Memorial and the harbour village of West Weymss before arriving in our destination of East Weymss where there are bus options to Kirkcaldy for onward bus and rail travel home.
