The route is relatively flat along small country roads, good paths through open farmland with fine views to Berwick Law and the Bass Rock. The return from St Monans is along the Fife Coastal Path.

The section between the picturesque village of Ceres and St Andrews is 9.5 miles (15.3km). The route takes you out over rolling farmland towards Drumcarrow Craig, the Hamlet of Denhead, Craigtoun Park and along the Lade Braes to St Andrews. This is a part which is popular with walkers and one I would recommend.
