Fife Coastal Path – Is one of Scotland’s Great Trails and it starts (or ends) at Newburgh waterfront, 1.5 miles from Lindores Lodge. The Fife Coastal Path runs from the Tay Estuary in the north and stretches for 117miles to the Forth Estuary in the south. The path is clearly waymarked (with the circular logo shown) and offers a range of walking experiences from the easy and level, to the wild and demanding. Whether done in bite sized chunks or as a long distance route there is definitely something for everyone. (click on map to enlarge)

Falkland, ‘East Lomond Summit’ – we love this 4 mile walk, doable in trainers and starting in historical Falkland, home of Falkland Palace built by the Stuart Kings. The walk meanders past a fall, a den and takes you to the East Lomond summit offering you widespread views over Fife farmland and Falkland village.

Perthshire, The Hermitage – A conifer and deciduous wooded gorge with natural features including the River Braan and Ossian’s Hall. The drive here is well worth it. There are different walk routes including short walks for people with walking sticks. The walks are very beautiful and meander past waterfalls with leaping salmon, pleasant countryside views and the lovely Rumbling bridge. 29miles from Lindores Lodge.
