Completed path is on the map
Friday, April 20, 2012
To coincide with the completion of the Fife Coastal Path, an updated map of the longest continuous coastal path in Scotland is now available.
Stretching from Kincardine Bridge at the region’s western boundary to Newburgh in the north, the Fife Coastal Path is the country’s oldest and most popular coastal walk. The newly-launched map includes the recently added western and northern extensions and gives a detailed guide of the entire 117 miles of the Path.
The new Fife Coastal Path map is available from the Trust’s base at The Harbourmaster’s House in Dysart or online at www.stirlingsurveys.co.uk priced £5.95. You can also order over the phone by calling us on 01592 656080.
The updated map is part of Stirling Surveys’ popular Footprint series and follows the award-winning first edition of the Fife Coastal Path. Stirling Surveys ensures a proportion of the map’s sale value goes to the Trust in order to help maintain the Path for its long-term sustainability.
David Barbour, partner at Stirling Surveys, said “The first edition of the Fife Coastal Path map went on sale in 2005 and has proved a popular guide for a much-loved route, as well as winning recognition by both the British Cartographic Society and International Cartographic Association. We are hopeful that the updated version, which we have kept to a manageable A2 size on waterproof and durable paper, will prove to be equally in demand by users of the Path.”
Amanda MacFarlane said: “We are very pleased to be launching the updated Fife Coastal Path map which we hope will encourage people to experience the path as well as promoting the new extensions. We are grateful to Stirling Surveys for their continued support to the Fife Coastal Path.
“The Fife Coastal Path is one of Scotland’s Great Trails and Fife has been recognised as the top destination for outdoor tourism for the past four years, we are confident that the new extensions will prove popular and will help to ensure the Fife Coastal Path continues to deliver significant economic impact across the region.”
“FCCT would also like to express our thanks to all the landowners involved in the creation of the two extensions”
