Part of Fife’s Industrial area the villages of East Wemyss, Buckhaven and Methil are all reminders of Fife’s vibrant past. From coal mining to ship building remnants of days gone by are still prominent in the landscape. The path climbs up to the remains of Macduff Castle, which as history is told is linked to the Thane of Fife, who slew Macbeth. The path then passes through fields and along an old tramway to Buckhaven, then through urban and industrial areas to Methil. Of interest are the Randolph Wemyss Memorial Hospital and Methil Heritage Centre. The route starts at East Wemyss Coastal Path car park and there is a variety of unmade paths and rough terrain along this route so please take care.
