The small village of Kingsbarns lies 3.6 miles North of Crail, and 6.5 miles south of St. Andrews on the coast. It was so named as it was an old location for storing grain for transport and later use at the Royal Palace of Falkland in the Howe of Fife. Its Golfing society was founded in 1793.
Another stunning section of the Fife coastal path to take in a walk, a picnic, the wildlife and of course the views. This charming blue flag beach stretches for about 2 miles and is bordered by rolling sand dunes. It’s a very popular beach for walkers and the Fife Coastal Footpath passes above it. There is plenty of space on the beach for all the family and it is an ideal spot for a picnic.
