Fife Coast Day 4 Crail to Kingsbarns

Written by  //  October 8, 2012  //  News, Pictures  //  No comments

Day 4 and our walk was starting in Crail.  The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship which is a Pro Am competition was starting with a third of the players at Kingsbarns, another third at Carnoustie and the final third at St Andrews.  I had agreed to watch some of the golf but first we had to walk there from Crail. 

We had to be careful with this section of the trail because there is a section that is impassable when the tide is in.  We were lucky we had plenty of time to get past before the tide rolled in.  When we got to the end of the village we had to walk through a holiday park.  It was very well looked after and some of the holiday homes/ posh caravans were very smart, Brian thought it would be a good idea to buy one!  They were certainly in an idyllic position but I think a 6 hour drive is a bit much for a weekend away.  We also saw them on a  lovely sunshiny day,  I wonder what we would think on a wild wet day?

When we got to Kingsbarns we climbed over the wall and watched the golf for a bit.  Apparently the big name players were playing at Carnoustie or St Andrews so I didn’t recognise anybody. After an hour we went into the village to get a coffee and find out the time of the buses back to Crail then it was back for some more golf watching.  We ended up  walking 10.5 miles that day, my feet were very tired.  After a rest it was time to go and find something to eat.  We went to the hotel round the corner and had a very nice meal.
