Hilltops and Viewpoints

A selection of lumps and bumps that make up the hills of Fife. Although of modest height, as the surrounding countryside is low lying, most provide excellent views.

The Lomond Hills are of course Fife’s highest range of hills and offer enough walks to merit their own section on this website.

Fife boasts seven “marilyns” and more information about routes to their summits is available on the Fife relative hills page.
