A fantastic walk along the Fife Coast Path with the added advantage of being accessible by public transport. The walk enjoys wonderful views of both the Forth Bridges, the Firth of Forth and the island of Inchcolm. It takes you alongside the beaches of Inverkeithing and Dalgety Bay and it visits the historic ruins of St Bride's Kirk and Aberdour Castle. Easily reachable from Edinburgh by train (less than thirty minutes), this walk delivers an amazing amount in its five miles and is a wonderful introduction to Fife and the Fife Coast Path.

Having only just recently moved to Fife, I chose to make this walk my first Fife walk submitted to Walkingworld because it is so easy to do, especially for me as it goes past my front door! It is a brilliant walk from start to finish.

Note that Dalgety Bay currently has some environmental restrictions placed on it and you should stick to the footpath at that point (which is signposted).

Have recently been sighting deer in Letham Hill Wood between Inverkeithing and St Davids Harbour, so don't just look out to sea for views and wildlife

Some on lead walking through the residential streets and off course on the train, but lots of off lead too along the beaches. Best to have the dogs on the lead around Dalgety Bay due to the current environmental issue, but lots of other places for dogs to run off Lead
