Wanderings and Windings

Want to be involved with creating walking and cycling routes around the Inner Forth area?

Inner Forth Wanderings and Windings is a year-long Heritage Lottery Fund-funded project, led by Inner Forth Futures.

The project aims to work with local communities around the Inner Forth to co-create eight day-long walking / cycling trails in the area. The routes will use existing paths and tracks to encourage local people and visitors to the area to explore the landscape and discover some of the many hidden gems to be found around the Inner Forth.

Over the next few months the project will be holding a series of workshops with local community groups and organisations around the Inner Forth to help develop the routes. To start the process, they have set up a Wanderings and Windings Facebook group, and are inviting people to join. The group has been set up to enable as many people as possible to contribute to the project, and will be a forum for ideas, discussions, planning and promoting the routes as we progress. As a member of the Facebook Group, people will receive updates on workshop planning, locations and dates, and any other news about the progress of the project. Most importantly, they will be able to contribute to discussions, talk directly to other group members, and share their own ideas and aspirations for routes around the parts of the Inner Forth that they care most about.

To get involved, join the closed Facebook group or contact Inner Forth Futures.

“New” Burntisland path

A big shout out to members of Kirkcaldy Ramblers, Cardenden Walking Club and Fife Walking Club for clearing the gorse bushes on a previously unusable path. This link path between the top end of Burntisland and Standing Stane Road has been unusable for a number of years due to the overgrown gorse bushes. Volunteers from the above clubs have now cleared the gorse and opened up the path.

The path provides a means of walking from the existing Burntisland path network to the western end of Standing Stane Road away from the busy A909. As such it will open up many circular routes over and round the Binn as well as linking Burntisland to the Aberdour “Kemal’s Cut” path.

Help the volunteers keep the path open in the future by walking it!

Want to try out the path as part of a guided walk? The Craigencalt Trust Walking Festival will be hosting a walk using this path on Friday 5th April.
