On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Fife Coastal Path

Looking for a more challenging group walk? Want to see some beautiful historical sites and spectacular coastal views along the way? Then this is the hub walk for you! Suitable for older children and adults, this route will be led by a WaterAid representative and starts at the 1816 Waterloo Monument which is in the shape of Napoleons hat and leads to Carlingnose Point nature reserve.

The historic town also has many 13th –17th century buildings to admire!

You will then continue  along  the  coast  to  St  David’s  Harbour  and around  Dalgety  Bay  to  Downing  Point,  with  its  gun  emplacements  and  panoramic  views  over  the  Forth it is well worth the effort! The  path  continues  to  Burntisland  with  its  historic  harbour,  post  reformation  church,  Blue  Flag  beach  and  numerous  recreation  facilities. From historic churches and woodland, to gun emplacements and Blue Flag beaches, there is plenty to see and experience on this hub walk!
