Fife Coast, East Wemyss

Fife Coast, East Wemyss, Scotland

This evening, I am focusing on an intruiging part of Scotland’s Fife Coast, namely that near the village of East Wemyss in Fife. Here can be found a diversity of activities and history which includes:

  • Remains of 15th century, MacDuff’s Castle.
  • Old sea caves on a raised beach which contain carvings from the Neolithic period up to modern times.  The best carvings can be found in Jonathan’s Cave.
  • Interesting sandstone geology as shown in image no two below.
  • Defunct World War Two defences along the coast including former gun emplacements.
  • The Fife Coastal Path which passes the village as part its 150km route along the coastline.

Here is part of the Fife Coastal Path

Clearly, a wealth of interests and opportunities in a very small geographic area. Suggest visit to nearby West Wemyss  if time allows.
