The toilet stop will be at the Bus Station on the other side of the Bridge.

 We the follow route 76 along the coast to Torryburn where we will leave the path and head for Fairley’s Garden Centre in Cairneyhill.

If you would prefer to eat sandwiches it should be possible on the benches outside the cafe.

Lunch is approximately at the halfway point.

After lunch we ascend northwards to join the lovely tarmaced West Fife Cycleway to Dunfermline then through Pittencrieff Park and onto routes which will take us back to the Bridge. If the weather is nice you may want to relive your youth by visiting the ice cream van in the Park!!
