Step back in time in the cobbled streets of Culross, a once-bustling port, and see why this is a favourite filming spot of the popular Outlander Series.

As you pass ruined towers and castles full of history, your guide will share some of the tales with you and make the landscape come alive as you move through it. Your destination today is Anstruther, home of award-winning Fish & Chips. Highly recommended, we think these always taste best eaten while sitting on the harbour wall!

Day 5 - Wednesday 4th September - Hiking - Anstruther to Cambo Sands (approx 8 miles)

The views from here are stunning so keep your eyes peeled for all of the local wildlife and you pass the lovingly maintained golf greens.
