KIngsbarns to St Andrews

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

Our final walk in this series of six walks starts in the small of village of Kingsbarns. We set off from outside the church and head down a road to the coast. The route takes us along the coast before we head inland through a wooded area and cross a bridge over the Kenly Water before arriving at Boarhills.

We then head back to the coast and follow the route to the impressive Buddo Rock. Once back at the coast the path follows close to the shore at some points and there are some muddy, steep and rocky sections before walking on easier paths and arriving at the East Sands in St Andrews and on into the centre of the town and the bus station where we can catch buses for onward travel.

The planned walks over sections of the Fife Coastal Path are as follows:

  • North Queensferry to Burntisland - 12 miles/19 km - Saturday 17th July 2021
  • Burntisland to East Weymss - 12 miles/19 km - Saturday 21st August 2021
  • East Weymss to Lower Largo - 7 miles/11 km - Saturday 28th August 2021
  • Lower Largo to Anstruther - 12 miles/19 km - Saturday 11th September 2021
