A twitch upon the thread this week — I discovered Hamish Brown’s Exploring the Fife Coastal Path in its new 2021 edition. Parts of that route have been in my DNA for sixty years, and I have been reading the author for forty years. Immediately, I was drawn back to the East Neuk, and to the northern hills where the Ochils peter out to the Tay. It is all given in Hamish’s polymathic chatty style, with minimal maps, encouraging you to use the OS mapping.
The route also chimes in with the idea of walks achieved with the help of public transport. Armchair walking for now, but how I’d like to get back on the route!
