Walking the Fife Coast

Last week, we took a few days off and walked the 90-odd miles of the Fife coastal path from Dundee. It is a good walk - with only a few dull sections, especially around Methil - but mainly low seacliffs, sandy beaches, fossils and interesting rock formations, castles, postcard-pretty fishing villages in crow-stepped, white-painted Fife vernacular, and (for us) friendly people and weather. Nothing spectacular or hairy-chested, but a fine few days out of the office getting the wind in our hair and sea air in our nostrils.

Did I say nothing spectacular? The Fife coast does have one of the best kept secrets in Scotland, the Elie chain walk - although you have to divert from the coastal path, which keeps to the clifftop, to find it...
