Start at the Coble Shore point at Eden Estuary.  The Visitor Centre overlooks the upper estuary, a nature centre and SSSI of international significance for birdlife.

The section from Guardbridge to Kinshaldy skirts the airfield and into Leuchars with its fine 12th Century Romanesque church.  The route passes Earlshall Castle and crosses Earlshall Muir, the last remnant of the once extensive wild dunelands that dominated this coast until the early 1920’s and the advent of commercial forestry.

Boardwalks cross the old marshlands leading into Tentsmuir Forest and the Kinshaldy
car park.

From Kinshaldy the trail parallels the coast passing a large ice house, once used to store salmon, en route to the Tentsmuir Point National Nature Reserve.  The reserve is home to a diverse variety of wildlife including birds, bats, red squirrels, seals and butterflies.

The path along the Tay Estuary runs along the edge of the dunes to Lundin Bridge then on to Tayport, the Tay Bridge and along the coast to Wormit Bay.
