Largo to Crail via The Chain Walk

Good weather at last, and a vast improvement in the scenery and surroundings. The Chain Walk was unexpectedly strenuous in a couple of places- not to be taken lightly.
Coming out of Anstruther I saw a saddleless and riderless horse bolting up a hillside track. A bit further on a girl was running towards me, phone to ear and blood streamIng down her face. She would not stop and was crying and saying she must retrieve the hoese. There was nothing else Irj could do.
Further on I met a couple coming towards me. They told me about camp sites and pubs in Crail which was now about two miles distant. They also offered their garden if all else failed. The first site jn Crail no longer took tents even tbough the "brown sjgn" in the town said hey did, and it was the same at the second, so I am now camped in David and ?'s garden and looking foeward to a meal
in the recommended Golf Hotel.
For anybody considering this walk who is not too bothered about ticking it off as a fully completed long distance walk i would suggest startimg it at  Largo. From there on it has been very pleasant so far.
