For folk that would rather not walk the 1 mile on an uneven path .I parked at Ardross Farm Shop and walked through the farm yard as the Castle is directly behind the farm . there is a good comand of the surrounding coastline the ruins are much diminished probably from reuse of the stone over the centurys It would be interesting to know what the design was originally. I think Fife Council should put a placard up explaining the design and history for the walkers on the coastal path

This castle is on a lovely spot on the coast path. Sadly there is no informative board to tell visitors more of its story - the ruins apparently date back to the 15th century. Walkers will pass the castle, and its a lovely stroll from the car park at Elie towards St Monan's, with the ruins of Newark Castle in one direction and the Lady's Tower visible further along the coast the other way.

Fantastic views and access to Ardross Farm shop is close by. There is not much left of Ardross but the walk along the coastal path more then makes up for this

So worth a visit. Needs to have a plaque explaining the history though ( I’m a history nerd so was disappointed)

We had a walk along the coastal path today to visit the castle ruins.
Probably the easiest and shortest route to find the castle is to park in the car park at 'Ruby Bay' at the end of Elie (nearest to St Monans) and walk in the direction of St Monans from there.
It is a good 1 mile walk and the path goes up and down and is uneven in places, so may not be suitable for anyone not too steady on their feet.
Alternatively it can be reached from the St Monans side but the distance is greater at 1.5 miles.
Disappointingly, when we arrived at the castle ruins, there was no information whatsoever to say what it was or had been. A shame really, as two separate families we spoke to had no idea it was castle ruins and thought it was an old farmhouse.
The ruins are in a scenic location at the edge of a cliff top, and Ardross Farm Shop stands directly behind.
Not too much left to see re Ardross Castle but there are a few other things that may be of interest on the coastal path to St Monans beginning with the Lighthouse, then Lady's Tower, the aforementioned Ardross Castle and Newark Castle.

Had an amazing time rambling on the coast of Elie did the walk to crail very challenging especially if the ground is wet. The views where stunning all round. It's a must for any hiker walker.

Very scenic location with + lovely views across the forth, + dates from 15th century, = in effect a ruin.
