The small town of Buckhaven sits on the shores of the Firth of Forth between East Wemyss and Methil.

This walking route loops around the town on a easy going walk and is a favourite of my grandad and his dog Skipper.

The walk begins in the coastal car park on the Fife Coastal Path. Leaving the car park you head along the shore. The views on a clear day can be quite spectacular especially at dawn.

The route turns into the town and up on to College Street and on to Wellesley Road. Follow the road past the hospital and turn left on to Cowley Road (where my Dad was raised) Follow the road around the  housing estate and out on to the playing fields.

The route then follow a few wee trails along the edge of the estate and out on to the road (B930) which then leads you back towards the coast. Turn right when you reach the main road (A955) and walk a short distance before crossing the road on to a farm track that leads you back to the coastal car park.
