Fife Coastal Path – Aberdour to Kinghorn

Starting from Aberdour railway station a path takes you along the back of Aberdour Castle and then cuts through a small narrow walled lane down to the end of Silver Sands Beach. From here there is a good path heading east between the edge of the sea and the railway line.

In the distance the small town of Burntisland comes into view and looking out over the Firth of Forth you can get good views of Edinburgh.

The path eventually crosses under the railway line for the next section as you walk towards Burntisland. There are lovely wooded sections and at one point a small stream ran down beside the path in a small waterfall. Some footpath repairs were being carried out to this area when we passed.

Just before arriving into Burntisland we passed a large field with a tall antennae standing out against the beautiful skyline.

Arriving into Burntisland we walked over Burntisland Links to the sea again to follow the coast towards Kinghorn. There was a colourful burger stand on the edge of the links selling a variety of burgers …. and of course Irn Bru!

The beachfront at Burntisland is very pleasant with a long curved bay running round to Kinghorn.

At the east end of the beach is a lovely house now being used as a guest house. This was originally the Burntisland Tea Rooms in Victorian days.

Unfortunately there was no path by the sea from the east side of Burntisland to Kinghorn so we had to walk along the roadside. On the road into Kinghorn was a large statue erected in memory of Alexander III, the last Celtic King of Scotland who died at this site in 19th March, 1286. The monument was erected in 1886 in the Victorian style with a plaque and an inscription .

Kinghorn is a beautiful small coastal town and as we arrived there was a lovely view over the small bay.
