Beginning in North Queensferry, you can access this start point from Edinburgh by bus or train. This will also mean you cross the Forth Bridge! Taking 5 days, the route going north along the east coast of Scotland is 63 miles. The route ends up in St Andrews, where there is also so much to explore. The coastal path is peaceful and relaxing, an ideal place to wind down after all the exciting festival events!
