Holiday in Fife: Day Two

Wednesday 19 September 2012

Cellardyke to Crail Coastal Walk
Drive to Pittenweem & Elie
Dinner in Falkland

Taking a picnic lunch with us, we set off on the 3 - 4 mile coastal walk from Cellardyke to Crail. The Fife Coastal Path runs from the Forth Estuary north to the Tay Estuary covering 117 miles.

 Field of wheat with beautiful blue sky - seen from the coastal walk.

It was a lovely, sunny day and we enjoyed seeing the farm animals, birds, insects, flowers and sea views along the way.
 

At one point, there were some extremely weird rock formations that looked like a head.

 

At Crail, (above) we caught the bus back to our starting point before driving on to the pretty fishing villages of Pittenweem and Elie (below).

In the late afternoon, we drove inland to Falkland (famous for its Palace (part of which, is seen below)), hoping to get a meal at a Chinese Restaurant we had visited a year or so back, but sadly it had closed down. Instead we had a meal at the Stag Inn. Rob had nut roast with mashed potato and vegetables, with the garlic bread from my meal. I had five bean vegetable chili, and we shared a portion of 'hand cut' chips. It was a filling and tasty meal. The chunky chips were particularly nice.
