Fife Hills A to Z : G

Glenduckie Hill


A great wee multi-summited hill near Newburgh in the north of Fife that lies just a stone’s throw from the Fife Coastal Path. Most walkers on the coastal path stroll around this hill without even considering including it in their walk.

The main 218m summit is clad in trees and does not offer much in the way of views. Better though, is the open 200m (approx) summit to the south west, the site of a hill fort and a good viewpoint for the surrounding countryside.

This summit is easy to reach via tracks and paths that circle the hill, including the Fife Coastal Path that skirts the eastern and northern slopes. An upturned stone marks the summit along with the remains of a memorial bench. Visiting during the winter months when the trees are not in leaf is recommended. For the energetic walker it is easy enough to combine Glenduckie Hill with its better known neighbour Norman’s Law. Glenduckie is for the connoisseur though looking to escape the crowds that sometimes flock to Norman’s Law.
