Did this one heading home after a couple of days break in the East Neuk of Fife. Hardest part was actually finding the start of the walk. Not a lot of information available on it. Turns out it's a parking area on the minor road out of Kirkton of Largo, between the primary school and the graveyard. Fife Council and/or Chestertone Farm seem quite keen that walkers use this route only!

Followed the grassy path along the edge of the field. It soon develops into a lane which passes some cottages and is then carefully signposted through the farmyard and into another lane where the business end of the walk begins.

It's a straight, steep haul up to a little minor top before a short dip and climb back up to the trig point and cairn where there are views across most of Fife and across the Firth of Forth, with North Berwick Law, Bass Rock and the Isle of May all standing out.

Returned by same route.

Nah, that's OK Gammy. You just said what everyone else was probably thinking! :lol: As for Ailsa, she does actually have her own account. Set up when she was only a few days old! :lol: Her trip reports go under my account for the time being though. The day she can walk up the hill under her own steam........ :lol:

Great report & photos, of for me, a much under-appreciated corner of Scotland.

Another nice one Graeme, I love those sub 2000's, though having carried my grandson around the cliffs of Cornwall for 2 weeks I don't envy you having to do that for another year :shock: but it sure is worth it and I think it might actually have helped offset at least some of the fish suppers I indulged in :lol:

A really informative report, thanks Graeme.

I have just been up there with the family and would never have found the start point with out your directions. Great views and very strong wind off of the forth but a great afternoon stroll.
