This path is referred to by the tourist chiefs as Fife's Fringe of Gold, an allusion to a remark made by James VI - I'm not sure that's the title I would have chosen but we're stuck with it now.  Forget the name, enjoy the walk.  First pictures taken 2001.

The road through the Earl of Moray's estate.  Has to have the most daffodils I have ever seen in one place in my life. We were concerned, on looking at the map, that we would meet a lot of traffic as the path goes along metalled roads.  This is as much as we saw.

And now fast forward to 2003, the ferry from Zeebrugge sails up the Forth and the seals ignore it.  The sound they make singing to each other is unearthly, no wonder it spawned so many stories. If they were just stories....
