Fife Coastal Path

Fife Coastal Path


Scotland was described by James VI as 'a beggar's mantle fringed with gold' - the gold being the chain of little Fife ports from which merchant ships, smuggling vessels and fishing fleets plied their trade over the centuries. Hamish Brown's new book on the Fife coast introduces its wealth of castles, churches, harbours, monuments and red-roofed 'little houses'.
Along the Fife Coastal Path gives practical advice on all aspects of walking the route, whether you wish to make a seven-day trip along its whole length or walk a short section on a Sunday afternoon. Like the other books in the Long Distance Guides series it is illustrated with many full-colour photographs and detailed maps. The entire Fife coast is decribed in words and pictures, including the charming fishing village of teh East Neuk, Pittenweem, Elie and St Monans, as well as Anstruther, Crail and St Andrews. This is not merely a guidebook, but a mine of information about people and places that can be read for pleasure and kept as the souvenir of a unique and unforgettable part of Scotland.
