Earlsferry to Pittenweem Shared Path

ENCAP is working together with the communities of East Neuk to develop a shared off-road path between Pittenweem, St Monans, Elie and Earslferry, creating an active travel route which will improve access for all.

This project will present a significant opportunity to invest in and promote active and sustainable travel in East Neuk, connect our rural communities and inspire people to reduce car use for everyday journeys.

Our Path will connect with the Anstruther, Cellardyke, Kilrenny and Crail Shared Path and the Crail to St Andrews Shared Path. It is also part of a broader vision to connect the communities along the Fife coastline (East Neuk 50) and provide all people with a safe, continuous, convenient and a single shared path route from Kirkcaldy to Dundee.



Active travel can bring enormous benefit to people’s wellbeing and the environment. The goal is that people of all ages and abilities should be able to enjoy themselves cycling, walking and wheeling.

ENCAP employed Crispin Hayes Associates and works with the Community Councils of Pittenweem, St Monans and Elie & Earlsferry and partners Fife Council, Anster Bike Group and other local groups to realise this project.



Shared Path in the US

We anticipate to complete the feasibility study and route options in May 2021, and we hope to complete the build of the shared path by the end of 2024.

The project is funded by the Scottish Government through Transport Scotland’s Places for Everyone and is administered by Sustrans.

Join our steering group

Whether you have got lots or only a little time to spare. We can’t build the path without the support of the community. We are always looking for more people to join the steering group and help coordinate the successful completion of our project. We meet four times a year.
