Woodland and Forest Walks in Fife

Fife contains the four large commercial Forestry and Land Scotland plantations of Devilla, Blairadam, Tentsmuir and Pitmedden. All are working forests though the first three have also been developed with recreation in mind. Pitmedden, which is very popular for mountain biking, is less developed. There are numerous smaller plantations and areas of mixed/natural woodland throughout Fife. A selection are described here. However, there are many others which can be used for short walks or incorporated into a longer walk in the area.

Please be aware that walking in forest and woodlands can very often be wet and muddy underfoot, especially after heavy rain. Woodland paths can also become overgrown in late Summer and be difficult to follow. Appropriate footwear (eg lightweight walking boots) should be worn. Fife Walking routes do not generally use manicured footpaths !
