This section of the Fife Pilgrim Way Culross to Dunfermline starts in one of Scotland’s oldest Royal Burghs.
Culross (pronounced Coo ross) is one of the most picturesque burghs in Scotland. Culross in Gaelic Cuilean Ros means holy point or promontory. Situated on the north bank of the Firth of Forth between Dunfermline and Stirling its little houses and cobbled streets provide a picture postcard appearance. Culross is popular with artists and Outlander fans will recognise it as the fictional village of Cranesmuir.
The Fife Pilgrim Way runs between North Queensferry or Culross on a 64 mile route all the way to St Andrews. The route opened in July 2019 and is designed as a varied route for residents and visitors alike. It follows in the footsteps of the medieval pilgrims and takes in many sites of historical interest uncovering some hidden gems along the way.
I’d forgotten just how wonderful the wild flowers smell in the sunshine as you walk the Roome Bay to Castle Walk section of the Fife Coastal Path at Crail. This is our favourite route to the shops and usually walked at least once a day when we’re here on holiday.

In October 2010 fossil hunting David Attenborough visited Crail with a film crew as part of his First Life Series. He was looking for fossils and Crail’s own carboniferous tree trunk. This tree trunk can be found in the rocks at West Braes at low tide
