C4 Guardbridge - Peat Inn
This article is about the Class III road numbered C4 maintained by Fife Council.
For other roads numbered C4, see C4
.


The C4 starts on the A91 at Edenside a little to the east of Guardbridge and heads south, climbing through Kincaple into the village of Strathkinness on the crest of the ridge. After dropping a little to cross the Kinness Burn, the route crosses the B939, and climbs over the shoulder of Drumcarrow Craig. Continuing south, the landscape levels out a little as the road approaches its end on the B940 just north of the Peat Inn. At the northern end there is also a spur running east from Kincaple back to the A91.

Historic milestones along the C4 give distances northbound to Newport and southbound to Colinsburgh, Kilconquhar, and Elie, indicating this is part of a more-important cross-county route between ferries over the Tay and Forth. The modern route confirmation sign at the north end of the route near Edenside still gives distances to Elie (B941) and Leven (A915).

The northern side of Strathkinness. The road can be seen continuing up the hill in the distance to the left of Drumcarrow Craig.
