Use our Travel and Information section when planning a visit to one Fife’s fantastic open spaces and long-distance walking routes there are some things to help you make the most of your visit. You can also purchase maps and guide books to help plan your trip.
Many of our sites are accessible by public transport, for up to date information on public transport visit. Traveline is Scotland’s national public transport information service. An impartial and up to date guide to all forms of public transport available across the country.
Their journey planner can help you plan your route and check times.
Please note that call charges will apply.
There are several areas of the Fife Coastal Path which will involve walking along beaches and shorelines.
Path users must be aware of the dangers of rising tides and should always check the tide times before setting off. Most online weather sites have links to tide tables and you can find regularly updated times at the Tide Times website.
It will come as no surprise to you that the weather in Scotland is unpredictable!
Even in what we loosely term ‘summer’, the temperature at the coast can drop quickly as sea haar and winds increase. When walking in the Lomond Hills Regional Park the weather can change very quickly. Please ensure that you are appropriately dressed for your trip.
Many public toilets are temporary closed due to the current Covid 19 pandemic and therefore we need to adapt when visiting the great outdoors. Unfortunately, we are starting to see the negative impact when public toilets are not readily available and therefore in partnership with other stakeholders, we have put together this leaflet entitled “Where to go during the Pandemic”. Download our ‘Where to go during the Pandemic’ leaflet for guidance.
We manage a range of public toilet blocks along the route of the Fife Coastal Path. Many of these are open all year but some are subject to seasonal hours.
Please click on the area you are visiting to find out the locations and opening hours of the facilities we manage.
