The start of the year so it was time for a walk. The next part of the Fife Coastal Path. After parking at Ferrytoll Park and Ride we started walking towards Inverkeithing. We had never been to Inverkeithing or even driven through it. Like so much of the Fife Coastal Path, Inverkeithing is full of surprises.
Next to the Civic Centre is The Old Hospitium of The Greyfriars. It is one of best surviving examples of a friary building in Scotland. The majority of the building dates from the 14th century, and it was remodelled into a tenement after the Reformation in the 17th century. It became a museum in 1934-37. The building is now used as a community centre.
A little further on we came across the mercat cross which is said to be a fine example.
We walked out of Inverkeithing along the coast towards St David’s Harbour. As we walked we had lovely views of the Forth Rail Bridge.
