Starting from the quaint village on the West Coast of Fife, Culross, head North East following the Pilgrims Way, all the way to the historic town of St. Andrews.
Upon reaching St. Andrews, head South West back to Culross along the Fife Coastal Path back to Culross.

There are many picturesque villages along the way, both up and down. Plenty place to entice you to sit for a while.
Due to certain sections of the Fife Coastal Path being on the beach, there is a chance you will have to consult the tie timetables. However, there are high and low tide paths should timings not be suitable.

If you get a sun shine, blue sky kind of day, there will be some excellent views along the way, especially as you return along the Fife Coastal Path.

For me, on the day, it wasn't to be.
Lots of little things conspired against me and I ended my attempt at St. Andrews.
There will be another attempt in the coming months.
