After parking one car at Ferrytoll park and ride we parked the second car in Limekilns. We started the walk reaching the old Rosyth graveyard quite quickly. The path was beside the coast for a while and we had great views of the Forth.
As we climbed away from the coast to the main road there were great views of the naval dockyard – the reason why the path has to leave the coast.
The path turned back down to the coast through a housing estate then into Rosyth Europarc. As we headed down towards the port we came across a doocot.
The doocot was part of Rosyth Castle. Yes there is a castle at Rosyth. Mary Queen of Scots once visited it. The castle or at least it’s ruins is at the gates of the dock.
We took a short detour to visit the castle. It was an ideal place for a short rest!
Here are a few pictures of the castle.
From the castle we walked back to the park and ride.
