Pathhead Sands is a sheltered bay just off Fife Coastal Path, under the shadow of the ruins of Ravenscraig Castle. Please be aware that Ravenscraig Castle is currently closed for repairs.
With ample parking and picnic areas, this is a great beach ideal for a family day out. Situated at the east end of Kirkcaldy, adjacent to Ravenscraig Park this beach is easily accessible by public transport, car and on foot.
Pathhead Sands are winners of a Keep Scotland Beautiful 2023 Beach Award.
