Behind Seafield beach in Kirkcaldy is a new supermarket development and the Raith Rovers football ground. Looking across the bay is the Firth of Forth and the passing shipping, so this strand is a quiet spot between two bustling areas, The sea front promenade at Kirkcaldy was being repaired during the visit and there’s a feel of work in progress here, a town re-inventing itself for new times.

The view from Seafield beach.
Seafield is one of six Rural Award beaches along the Fife coastline. The beach is located to the south of Kirkcaldy, overlooking the Firth of Forth. It’s a sandy beach, with rock pools. If you walk south west along the Fife Coastal Path from here for ten minutes, you can watch seals basking in the sun and listen to the seabirds. There is fresh sea air and a real sense of freedom.
