Culross to Crombie

It was a nice day, a few weeks ago, so we decided to do another part of the Fife Costal Path. This time we took two cars parking one at Crombie and then driving to Culross to start. Before we started there was time for a bacon roll and a coffee. With the increase number of tourists in Culross due to Outlander the number of cafes has increased. We went to The Admiral which is opposite the mercat cross. It is small but serves lovely coffee and excellent bacon rolls

After breakfast we headed back on the Fife Costal Path at Culross. This took us along passed the railway line out of Culross towards the Torry Bay Nature Reserve.

Once passed the nature reserve we crossed the railway line – over a bridge – and onto a path my the road. Before reaching the main road we found a memorial to the Valleyfield Colliery.

We continued along the path through Valleyfield and then onto Torryburn. At Torryburn the path follows the coast line. In the middle of Torry Bay there is a witches rock. The rock was used to tie those who were suspected of witch craft. Here they were judged and sentenced as the tide rose.

As we walked away from the coast we discovered a graveyard. It was Old Crombie Parish Church.  There were several interesting gravestones.

From here it was a walk through some farm land to the car in Crombie.
