Along the Coastal Path – Part 3 Report
Thursday 14 June 2018

 

 Wednesday afternoon talk: 6th June 2108

 

 We were on the last lap “Along the Coastal Path” with Hamish Brown,

 following the trail from the wild area around Fife Ness with its geology to

  study and the North Sea just out there, on to Cambo Estate at Kingsbarns

  with glorious displays of snowdrops for which it is well famed.

  En route towards St. Andrews, the unmissable Caiplie Caves, the

  Rock and Spindle and the Maiden Rock  for climbing practice-----

  ( not for us, I hasten to add) and eventually the Old Grey City by the Sea,

  a regular cauldron of history and customs, recently celebrating its

  600 year old University.

  The old Railway line is now a straight path to Guardbridge and over the  

   Bridge to Leuchars with St. Athenase Church a prime example of rich

   Romanesque architecture.

   The final “leg” along Tentsmuir Forest and the wild shore brought us to

   Tayport, the “silvery Tay” and views beyond and retrospective of  Fife

   Coastal Path.

    A fitting end to the 81 miles , walked by many and known so well by

    Hamish Brown.
