Kirkcaldy Walking Festival : Kirkcaldy to Burntisland walk

27 August @ 9:45 am - 5:00 pm


Kirkcaldy Walking and Movement Festival 2023

An 11 mile walk being organised by Fife Out and About Walking Group for the Kirkcaldy Walking Walking and Movement Festival. This varied walk includes a section of coastal walking, two small hills (max elevation 221m), loch-side walking, farmland and industrial heritage. It is a full day’s walk and is best suited to people who have some previous walking experience and can cope with uphill sections on uneven paths.

Our walk starts from Seafield and heads out along the coastal path to Kinghorn passing Seafield Tower and Seafield cave. From Kinghorn we head inland to the lovely Kinghorn Loch, home to the Ecology Centre and many water-based activities. After the loch and associated woodlands we head west to the remains of Binnend village which once accommodated the workers of the Burntisland Shale Oil industry. Our walk then heads up to the viewpoint of The Binn with fantastic views over the Firth of Forth. From here we pass through rural farmland to the iron-age fort of Dunearn Hill with its peaceful lochan which folklore says was dug out by the devil. After taking in more views of the Forth, we will descend the hill to Stenhouse Reservoir to see the islet that the devil formed from the earth removed from Dunearn Loch. From Stenhouse we start heading downhill via the “gorse path” and Kilmundy to reach Burntisland via Rossend Castle.
