Description

Leaving Burntisland along a short strip of main road ,with a pedestrian walkway alongside, the Way returns to a quiet section of the Fife Coastal Path, past Kinghorn , where a Scottish king fell to his death, and onto Kirkcaldy, once the linoleum capital of Scotland . The path can become muddy as it skirts the coast. Across the water, the extinct volcanoes of the Bass Rock and North Berwick Law are visible.

Leaving Kirkcaldy and passing the grandly built old linoleum factory the Way descends abruptly to the beach, with the 15th century Ravenscraig castle towering above. Then the Way follows the signposted Fife Coastal Path through former fishing and coalmining villages and past ancient buildings and memorials to Lundin Links and Leven.
