Description

Crossing the Forth Road bridge, hundreds of feet above the Firth on a special bike/walkway, the Way descends into North Queensferry where, directly underneath the famous railway bridge, it joins Fife Coastal Path.

This signposted path hugs the coast dominated by great bluffs of magma, reminders of Scotland’s volcanic past, to Dalgety Bay. Great views looking back at the Forth bridges. Keeping to Fife Coastal Path and National Bike Route, the Way continues along quiet roads and forest paths until the famous island of Inchcolm comes into sight. Then past St Bridget’s church, along into the pretty fishing village of Aberdour, dominated by its castle, and down to the harbour. Then along the Fife Coastal Path round bays and along woodland tracts to the busy town of BurntIsland. Flat and easy going. Plenty of shops and pubs and information notices along the way.
