The Fife Coast & Countryside Trust are a local charity, based at the Habourmaster’s House in Dysart, dedicated to giving everyone the opportunity to experience Fife’s great outdoors.
We manage, maintain and preserve wide areas of the countryside of Fife, promoting responsible access to our wonderful and diverse outdoor sites.
We are headquartered in the beautiful and historic Harbourmaster's House in Dysart, which boasts a Coastal Centre, telling the story of this historic region and wider coastal regions, as well as a Bistro with stunning views over the Harbour and the Firth of Forth.
Some of the sites we maintain are:
The Fife Coastal Path
Scotland’s oldest and longest coastal path stretching for 117 miles through rich and varied landscapes from the Firth of Forth to the Firth of Tay. Visit the Harbourmaster’s House and our Coastal Centre which gives you more details on the coast and its importance in Fife.
