On the drive back home from the Tourism Fife Conference 2013, I decided to take the scenic route along the coast of southern Fife from Kinghorn to North Queensferry, before crossing the Forth Road Bridge.
Unfortunately, it was pretty misty when I arrived at Kinghorm Harbour, meaning that the usual views over to the southern banks of the Forth Estuary were obscured.

My next stop was in Burntisland. Although it was late February, it was mild and still enough to sit on a bench on the Prom for a few minuutes.

I had a stop at an elevated viewing point a couple of miles outside Aberdour.

There wasn’t much beach exposed at Silver Sands beach in Aberdour.

I had a quick stop at the Queensferry Hotel on the road down to North Queensferry as it has a viewing point.

My final stop was in North Queensferry, which lies at the foot of the Forth Rail Bridge. You certainly appreciate the enormity of the Forth Rail Bridge when you stand under it.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed my photo tour of the Fife coast.
