Walking Tour along Scotland's Fife coast

The Kingdom of Fife can look back on moving history. The Picts and Scots competed here for supremacy and fought together against invasions of the Viking tribes from Denmark. At the same time, the sea was the livelihood of fisherman and innumerable villages are witness to the prosperity and to the traditions originating from fishing. Extensive parts of the coast are under conservation and the former kingdom of Fife appears largely untouched and wild.

Tour character: Level 1

You occasionally walk on asphalt roads around the villages. Otherwise the hike trails are largely on well-maintained and easy paths. There are almost no differences in altitude, but good physical condition is required for the long stages.

7 nights accommodation in 3* hotels and guest houses incl. breakfast
luggage transfer
