Budding photographers have a snapping chance to get their work featured on the front cover of a book about the Fife Coastal Path.

Fife Coast and Countryside Trust – the region’s leading environmental charity responsible for managing and conserving Fife’s countryside – is inviting amateur photographers to submit photos capturing the path and its diverse beauty and natural wonders as part of the competition.

The Fife Coastal Path guidebook will be distributed through various outlets offering great exposure to the winner.

The path is 99 miles long, stretching from Kincardine in the south west of Fife, to Newburgh – with plans to extend the path up to the region’s northern boundary to the Tay Bridge soon to be launched.

The path is rated as one of the top 20 walks in Scotland by Scottish National Heritage and VisitScotland as part of their Scotland’s Great Trails. It is a much-loved local landmark exhibiting some of Fife’s extraordinary biodiversity that incorporates a stunning array of plant life and animals, including seals, dolphins, squirrels, insects and hundreds of bird species.

Walkers can also explore unique geological, archaeological, military, religious, industrial and architectural sites.

Fife Coastal Path features in ‘Appetite for Adventure – A Gastronomic Guide to Scotland’s Great Outdoors’ by Lucy Gillmore in association with VisitScotland and came runner up last year in the UK for best Coastal Path by readers of Coast Magazine.

Photos need to be submitted by December 2011 and be at least 300dpi. To enter the competition, email your photos to
