Cycling the Fife Coast

DAY

add to trip planner

Keen cyclist and Sustainability Researcher James Bonner took a 3 day cycle around the Fife coast, taking in some of its natural and cultural attractions.
Dunfermline

Dunfermline

Dunfermline: After an early breakfast in the town, I spent some time at the 12th century Abbey - which was particularly atmospheric in the winter morning light.  I’d hoped to visit the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum, but with it closed for the winter, it’s an attraction to visit come spring. 

Dunfermline to Culross

Dunfermline to Culross

Limekilns and Charlestown: Cycling south of Dunfermline (consider approaching via ‘Waggon Road’, as this connects to a cycle path which runs westwards alongside the busy A985) on the Firth of Forth these two peaceful little villages feel a world away from Dunfermline, and Edinburgh across the water.

Culross: Cycling west through Crombie, before taking the path along the edge of the Firth of Forth takes you to the beautiful Culross - one of the country’s best preserved medieval villages, and increasingly recognised as a filming location for the ‘Outlander’ TV series. After spending some time taking in the architecture of the village I had great lunch at the ‘Biscuit Café’ part of the Pottery Gallery (while The Red Lion Inn had also been recommended a a great place for food).  

Culross to Kincardine

Culross to Kincardine

From Culross a cycle path off the main road follows the coast west to Kincardine, and the border between Fife and Clackmannanshire. Kincardine has a number of shops and places to eat, and the option to cycle over the Kincardine bridge towards Falkirk, or further west to Clackmannan, Alloa and Stirling.  

The Wild Fife Five to spot

The Wild Fife Five to spot

Heard of the Famous Five? Well here’s Fife’s wildlife famous five for you to spot throughout the seasons on land, sea and on the skyline when you’re out and about. Comical puffins on the Isle of May, soaring sea eagles and colourful dragonflies. Look out in autumn for scurrying squirrels on the red squirrel trail in Devilla Forest and cute seals along the Tentsmuir shoreline.

Fife Five amazing places to experience art

It would be pants not to experience some of the hottest art venues in Fife. Why not take the train and follow the Artline to Fife, make some stained glass pants (not to wear obviously!), meet talented artists and craft makers and witness incredible craftsmanship up close as works of art are created.
