Walking

In Scotland around 40% of journeys under 2 km are made by car    . Switching to walking for short journeys could have a significant impact on your carbon footprint, as well as improving your health and reducing local air pollution   . The links below provide some information about walking routes and footpaths in the East Neuk, and further afield in Fife and the rest of Scotland.

East Neuk Shared Use Path

Plans are currently underway to develop and build a shared-use path that connects the East Neuk villages, for walking, cycling and wheeling. Find out more about this on our cycling page.

Fife Coastal Path

The Fife Coastal Path runs for 150 kms from North Queensferry in the south to the Tay bridge in the north, passing through the East Neuk coastal villages along the way. For a map and information about the path go to the Fife Coast & Countryside Trust website.

Fife Council Core Paths

The core paths are a network of paths which aim to give the public reasonable access throughout their area. They can include any type of path, from public roads to muddy tracks. An interactive map of the Fife Core Paths can be found here.

Scottish Paths Map

The Scottish Paths Map, created by The Ramblers charity, shows almost 42,000 miles of paths, including many not shown on Ordnance Survey maps. Take a look at the interactive map to find paths in your area, or you could even help improve the data by volunteering to audit paths.
