Walking around Dunfermline
by thewaverider » Tue May 20, 2014 12:03 pm
Currently staying in Dunfermline (Working) and was hoping to get home before my trip to Mount Elbrus but my working trip has now been extended. I am looking for the following
Shorter evening walks around Dunfermline (Staying at the Pitbauchilie Hotel) and was going to try and get an afternoon or day off and head towards Loch Lomond.
Can anyone recommend any good walks in either? (Bagging a couple of Munros or Corbetts would be good)

A nice evening walk might be Craigluscar Hill on the NW of the town; or even Hill o’ Beath by the M90 (best access is through Kingseat-Cowdenbeath Road)

You could also do a bit of the Fife Coastal Path although the best bits of that are between Lower Largo and St.Andrews.

Climb Benarty from any direction,. The RSPB place gives you coffee until about 5, and there is an ascent from behind it, but there is also a wee track from the road to the south. Very well worn, but not on a map.
You could also do the circuit of Loch Ore
All these are in Hamish Brown's 25 Fife Walks. He also suggests you walk the pedestrian way on the Forth Road Bridge.
A bit further west is The Binn between Kinghorn and Burntisland, also in the book, which gives a good high up parallel to the coastal path.

Head north up the M90 to Junction 5 follow the signs for Scotlandwell, takes you along the south coast of Loch Leven.
Park at the church car park in Scotlandwell, cross the road & off you go. Cracking views of Loch Leven & Kinross

Loch Leven itself has nice trails, and Falkland is sweet and close to the Lomond Hills. Fife has loads of wee hidden gems.
