Started from Aberdour at 8:40am. Cool, misty and cloudy. More comfortable than yesterday.

I followed the trail signs but soon came to a diversion leaving Aberdour. There were no obvious signs to lead me so I made my way back to the main road. I knew that would lead me to Burntisland where I could regain the trail. Bad news was there was no sidewalk so it became a game of chicken with oncoming traffic. Just stay alert for 3 miles. Made it with no problems.

Entering Burntisland it was raining lightly so I put the rain cover on my pack. I regained the trail by following signs for Kinghorn and picked up the A921 roadway. Outside of Burntisland the sun tried to peek through for a few minutes.  The road parallels the shoreline to Kinghorn.
I made a pit stop to view the course at Kinghorn. Next to the road I could see a tee box with a large hill in front. There was a tall pole on top of the hill. I'm thinking, where does the hole go? When I got to the top of the hill I saw a green about 100 yards away. I had my answer...a 195-meter BLIND par 3! It's a par-66 course but has some hills and gorse. Interesting if nothing else.

The trail picks up along the shoreline in King horn leading to Kirkcaldy. I arrived in Kirkcaldy at 1pm and walked around town before finding my hotel. I'll be here for two nights. Plan to walk part way to Leven and take the bus back here, then pick up the next day where I left off. Should have time to explore Kirkcaldy.

With all the diversions, I walked 11.28 miles.
