This weekend we had some friends to visit and we took them to St Andrews via the Fife Coastal Path. The Coastal Path covers the whole of the 80 odd miles of the Fife coastline, which we embarked on just 3.5 miles (which we thought might take a couple of hours at the most). However it took us 3.5 hours which was because it was extremely slippy, steep and muddy underfoot-not ideal walking conditions-especially when the steep bits were often on the most narrow bits of path leading to a steep drop on the cliff! We also had to do a bit of scrambling up a cliff face when we realised the tide was coming in (which was a bad decision as we could have avoided that). We did pick the most beautiful day to walk the path though, and once we are back in Spring we will be able to take more visitors there or on other bits of the path! I am quite a tentative walker so didn’t really like the really slippy bits, and fortunately didn’t fall over there, but then approaching the end of the walk completely stacked it and fell right on my backside!
The pictures below are of Buddo Rock and of Tim climbing down from the top. I have to say you will never catch me or Mr B involved in climbing of any kind – it’s far too scary!
