Holiday in Fife: Day 2: Fife Coastal Path From Crail to Fife Ness

We decided to take it (fairly) easy today with a walk along the Fife Coastal Path between Crail and Fife Ness. It was quite hot and sunny. Very unexpected in March.

This pathway is about 5 minutes walk from the Crail Posthouse, so it was easy for us to go North or South from here.

You pass through a caravan park on the outskirts of Crail, then the path hugs the shore for the next few miles.


Looking back towards Crail
There is a wildlife reserve at one point - Kilminning. We certainly saw lots of sea birds and some early queen bees feeding on the gorse blossoms.

Approaching Fife Ness Coastguard Station (which I believe is no longer in use).

We had heard lots of screeching tyres and revving engines as we walked along, and all was explained as we turned inland at Craighead, passing the golf course, and coming to the Crail Raceway. The racetrack is based on an old airfield and is fortnightly filled with amateurs coming to drag race or track race. Fun for those taking part, not so much for those looking for peace and quiet!

We were going to have dinner in the Golf Hotel, which allows dogs in the bar area, but it was packed with people, and the three or four small tables were all taken, so we bought some food in the local Co-op and Smoke Fired Whole Foods shop for dinner.
