The Kingdom of Fife has one of Scotland’s most comprehensive cycle routes. Meldrums is the ideal venue from which to explore over 300 miles (500km) of quiet country lanes, disused railway lines and forest tracks as well as commuter routes in towns such as St Andrews. The beaches, castles, historic fishing villages and gently rolling countryside of Fife are ideal for biking.
Our favourite route is Ceres – Pitscottie – St Andrews – Ceres. Although this route is both on- and off-road it is suitable for adults and older children. The route begins and ends in Ceres and winds its way towards St Andrews and back – a distance of approximately 20 miles.
Others routes are available on the Millennium Cycle Ways website which is operated by Fife Council.
The Fife Coastal Path runs from the Forth Estuary in the south, to the Tay Estuary in the north and stretches for 117 miles. The path is clearly marked and offers a range of walking experiences from the easy and level, to the wild and demanding. Whether done in bit sized chunks or as a long distance route there is definitely something for everyone.
From the cosmopolitan atmosphere of St. Andrews to the former coal mining towns of central Fife; from the small fishing villages of the East Neuk to the bustling industrial areas of the west, rugged cliffs, award winning beaches, internationally important estuaries and wildlife reserves, walking the Fife Coastal Path is an experience not to be missed!
