To reach Stravithie you leave St Andrews on the A917 and take the fork at Brownhills onto the B9131. The milestones give the distances to Anstruther, Kilrenny and Pittenweem, and to St Andrews, Leuchars and Newport. There are also three way markers on this stretch of road, giving directions to smaller settlements and farms.
The photographs were taken on a sunny morning at the end of November 2012.
Here is an account of the walk. (PDF file)
The first mile from St Andrews was also photographed on an earlier walk.
Having reached the fourth milestone I went back a few hundred yards to the turning off to Boarhills.
It is about two miles from here to the coast road at Boarhills. The milestones between Boarhills and St Andrews are described here.
