This route will take you around the east Coast of Fife to experience some of the culinary delights available there.
The link at the bottom of this page will take you to a live Google map of the route with detailed directions, but you may wish to modify the route to suit yourself.
When you leave the Falkirk Rugby Club you will be heading east to the Queensferry crossing, the latest of the Forth Bridges. The new bridge is an amazing structure and if the weather conditions are right the suspension cables really sparkle in the sun.
As you cross the bridge look to your right and you will see the other two bridges, the original Forth Rail Bridge, an engineering marvel considering it was built such a long time ago, and the 60’s Forth Road Bridge which allowed motor vehicle crossing of the Forth for the first time, a much better alternative than the ferry.
Now travelling north and then East past Loch Leven and towards the Fife Coast and the East Neuk of Fife as it is reffered to. When you arrive in Anstruther, take a right down to the harbour where you will find a few fish and chip shops which serve the freshest fish you will find anywhere – straight off the fishing boats in the harbour and into the fryer. http://www.anstrutherfishbar.co.uk/ Don’t fill yourself here though as there are other delights to experience on the remainder of the route.
From Anstruther head to St Andrews where you will find Jannettas Gelateria at South Street, KY16 9QR www.jannettas.co.uk where you can try some amazing ice creams.
After leaving St Andrews head west towards Cupar and continue on the A91, Take a left at Auchterymuchty for Falkland, a charming village full of historic interest. After Falkland re-join the A91 at Strathmiglo and head west towards Kinross. Continue on the A977 to Powmill and the Milk Bar on your left. Stop hera for an amazing homemade scone packed with cream and jam. https://www.facebook.com/PowmillMilkBar/
Continue on the A977 to Kincardine and cross the River Forth again via the Clackmananshire Bridge and head back home to Falkirk and the campsite.
