The Fife coastal path’s chain walk, which dates back to the 1920s, is hidden down by the sea on the Firth of Forth. Leaving the quaint villages of Elie and Earlsferry you wander along the clifftop to find a grassy descent on Kincraig Point. The route down is awkward to find but once at sea level the coastal rock formations are stunning, with a series of wide ridges extending out to sea with gulches and caves between. This isn’t one for toddlers. Working back towards Elie involves walking along rocky slabs and scrambling up and down the steeper sections with the aid of chains and cut steps, to finish on the red sands of Earlsferry.

The “walk” is best attempted about an hour after high tide when the sea is on the ebb. See
