The tiny coastal village of Culross offers some good routes for walkers.

The village is is great place to explore all year round and it is a favourite of tourists visiting Scotland.

This trail begins in the coastal car park. There are plenty of spaces but in the hight of summer it can be very busy.

Leaving the car park you walk into the heart of the village passing by the historic Culross Palace which is a National Trust for Scotland property and well worth a visit. You can find out more at http://www.nts.org.uk/Property/Royal-Burgh-of-Culross/

The trail cuts through the village taking you out to a minor single lane road and onwards along the path towards the WASS Plantation passing the ruins of West Kirk. The path gives way to a dirt track here and it can get quite muddy in the wetter seasons so be prepared.

Once you reach the wood you cut along the edge and arrive back onto a minor road which you then follow back towards the coast. When you reach the coast, the route converges with the Fife Coastal Path which takes you a short distance along the coastline back to the starting point in the car park.

This route is a favourite of ours in the summer evenings and one that many of our friends have enjoyed over the years.

Route shared with Walk Fife by Kerry and Ian Watson.
