The coastal village of Elie is one Fife’s most popular stops for walkers on the Fife Coastal Path.
The route begins and ends on the shore but it can be started at any point in the village.
Starting off the route follows the Fife Coastal Path towards Shell Bay. The scenery is stunning all year round but this section is very exposed so if you are venturing out in the colder months make sure you are well prepared.
Once you have walked around the edge of the picturesque Shell Bay you make your way inland through the camp site and on towards Kilconquhar Loch. The loch is is ideal for bird watchers.
Leaving the loch you head back towards the village. Take care as cars and farm vehicles do tend to take this route at high speeds.
This route is not suitable for walkers with limited ability due to the terrain.
