The Fife Pilgrim Way – Discover Scotland’s Pilgrim Kingdom

The Fife Pilgrim Way – Discover Scotland’s Pilgrim Kingdom


From the 11th – 16th centuries, Fife attracted pilgrims from across Europe to the shrines of St. Andrew and St. Margaret. They followed their faith, in search of miracles, cures,
forgiveness and adventure. A network of ferries, bridges, wells, chapels and accommodation was built to facilitate the
safe passage of the pilgrims. Get away from it all and enjoy the fresh air and exercise by becoming a modern day pilgrim. Undertake an inspiring
journey by walking the ancient pathways, visit the medieval sites along the route and uncover Fife’s forgotten pilgrim stories. As in medieval times, you will find a choice of shelter and hospitality, whilst enjoying the kindness of strangers you meet along the way.

Following in the footsteps of medieval pilgrims, this new long distance route links up the Firth of Forth with the Firth of Tay,
through beautiful inland Fife. Starting at Culross and North Queensferry, the 69 mile path
passes through spectacular landscapes, with views of the Coast, Forth and Tay Estuaries and the Lomond Hills. It connects
medieval landmarks, industrial heritage and picturesque historic villages on its way to St. Andrews.

A varied route for residents and visitors, walk the fully signposted path or explore the sections that suit you, when it opens in 2018.
