Kirkcaldy Seafront

Updated: Apr 20, 2021

There is a nice and easy walk along the esplanade on the Kirkcaldy coastline. It is not the most exciting but it is a walk that is fully accessible, no matter what your disability is, and allows everyone to enjoy some fresh sea air.



There are a number of carparks along the seafront, all with disabled bays. I'd recommend going to the carpark opposite the car garages and flat blocks. There is a council toilet block that has an accessible toilet, to access a radar key is required. Please find the picture of it below. Otherwise Morrison's is only a short walk/drive away and has a more conventional accessible toilet.



Back to the walk on the esplanade, it is a completely flat, wide tarmac'd surface with no pot holes. It stretches from one end of the promenade to the other and the surface of the path always remains the same. I'm sure it is a mile or just over a mile one way.


The only disappointing thing is that there is a chunky blockade between the path and the beach/sea to protect against the waves, and its height makes it difficult/impossible for people in wheelchairs to see out over. But, if the tide is out there are breaks in the blockade every so often offering ramps down to the beach. It's nice to sit at the top of these, or so far down them depending on where the tide is. There are big boulders at either side of these ramps that are great for a seat if you are not in a wheelchair.



Like I said, this is not the most exciting of walks but it's very accessible and allows for everyone in a family to get out and enjoy the fresh air. Regardless if you use a manual/electric wheelchair, walking frame/stick, electric scooter etc.. you will be totally fine.


The highlighted path below is approximately 3Km in length.
