Fife Coastal Path hole repaired, re-opening Dysart-West Wemyss stretch
A section of the Fife Coastal Path, which had been closed after a large hole appeared, has now re-opened.
The damage, which was attributed to coastal erosion, appeared on the path between Dysart and West Wemyss at the start of last month.
Significant problems arose on the stretch of the path at West Wemyss harbour, so the decision was taken to close it from Edington Place, Dysart, to the top of West Wemyss.
In a statement Fife Coast and Countryside Trust, which manages the coastline, confirmed remedial works have now been carried out.
A spokesman said: “The path between Dysart and West Wemyss re-opened on February 17.
"The works were carried out by contractors employed by Wemyss Estate.
"It wasn’t a sinkhole, but the sea wall was damaged which allowed the sea to suck/hoover out the path materials behind the damaged wall.”
The Trust thanked locals for their patience while the work were carried out.
