Scotland #5: The Beauty of Fife

Scotland #1: Welcome to Edinburgh!
Scotland #2: The View from Arthur’s Seat
Scotland #3: The View from Scott Monument
Scotland #4: Going Forth to Forth

The Fife Coastal Path is a stunning walking path stretching 113 miles along the Firth of Forth and the Firth of Tay on Scotland’s eastern shore. Some people walk the entire path over several days, but we budgeted a couple of hours for a short walk on our way north. The hardest part was choosing just one small part out of 113 beautiful miles. After extensive research, we picked a four-mile stretch from Elie to Pittenweem.

It was a great choice. We walked past two ruins, through the tiny town of St. Monans and its incredible Wellie boot garden, and ended our stroll in the charming village of Pittenweem where we hopped the bus back to Elie. We saw everything from endless blue waters, to meandering cows, to adorable sculptures, to picturesque fields. I would be lying if I said we made an effort to limit the number of pictures we took.

We most certainly did not.

I quickly became obsessed with the Wellie boot garden in St. Monans. The evidence of said obsession is below.

Pittenweem has a fondness for delightful bike sculptures.
