The Culross to Torryburn section of the Fife Pilgrim Way has lots of points of historic interest. The picturesque village of Culross is home to a medieval abbey, St Mungo’s Chapel and 16th-century market cross. Views across the Forth and Torry Bay Local Nature Reserve offer birdwatching opportunities. Get your binoculars at the ready and look out for terns in summer and wading birds in winter.
Walkers should be aware that the path to Culross Abbey is a strenuous uphill climb, however there is also an option to follow the Fife Coastal Path at this point, which is graded as easy.
Public toilets are available for a small payment at the Culross car park.
This area of Fife was at the epi-centre of Scotland’s ‘witch hunts’. You can watch a video about the Fife Witch Hunts and read about the Witches Trail on our website. And why not delve into The Story of Fife Pilgrim Kingdom before you set off to learn more about colourful Culross?
