Fife Pilgrim Way

Tue 3 Feb 15

Ambitious plans to create a spectacular walking route across the Kingdom – the Fife Pilgrim Way – have commenced. 

The route replicates the footsteps of pilgrims who, throughout history, have journeyed from Culross Abbey and the quay at North Queensferry to St Andrews via Dunfermline.

The Fife Pilgrim Way will be an inland route which will take in existing rights of way, paths, tracks and the core path network as well as some new sections of path to offer a variety of walking opportunities for both residents and visitors to Fife. It will link the regions historic sites of pilgrimage with its award-winning natural beauty, passing landmarks such as Dunfermline Abbey, Markinch, The Waterless Way and Ceres, before ending in front of the grand ruins of St Andrews Cathedral.

Fife Coast and Countryside Trust in partnership with Fife Council, Fife Tourism Partnership, the Scottish Pilgrims Routes Forum and Scotways have been developing a viable pilgrim route that would draw together many of the isolated features of pilgrimage through Fife into a historically authentic long distance walking trail.

Walking/rambling clubs or church groups are invited to get in touch regarding the Fife Pilgrim Way proposals or consultation events. For further information, please contact Simon Hill of Fife Coast & Countryside Trust on 03451 555555 ext 450693 or email [email protected]
