How To Get There

You can access this area by either following the previous directions for Shell Bay Caravan Site,and then following the Fife Coastal Path,or by walking from Earlsferry.The latter though is much longer so I'd stick to going by Shell Bay.Follow the footpath on past Kincraig Point,and all of that path between there and Earlsferry can be called the chainwalk.

Although most of this area is quite easily accessible,one of the marks is a flat rock area which can quickly be cut off by the tide.It is located directly below some WW II installations and can be seen in the second photo.This particular part is also at the bottom of steep cliffs and can be difficult to negotiate.Be very careful if fishing this area.
 
Other parts of the Chainwalk as pictured here are very safe rock marks and in general fish onto sandy and shingly ground so there is not much in the way of snags.Actually,if there were just a bit more rocks and kelp,it would probably make the mark much better.

Species here will include cod,coley,pollack,mackrel,and flounder.Not in great numbers though,and winter fishing would be better but infinately more dangerous in the dark.

There are lots of safe marks in this area,and have equal amounts of fish to the tricky ones.
