Group name: Dunfermline and West Fife Ramblers
This group is a part of Forth Valley, Fife & Tayside Area.
Anyone is welcome to come and try one of our walks. We feel sure you will then be keen to join the Ramblers and enjoy our company regularly.
We walk throughout the year, with a varied programme from easy, local to more demanding mountain and moorland walking. All walks are graded and distance and ascent are given in the walk description to enable you choose one that suits your ability.For your first walk with us you are advised to choose one that might be "too easy" rather than overstretch yourself.
Dog walkers are welcome. While it's our group policy that walks are dog friendly unless otherwise stated, please contact the walk leader beforehand to ensure the walk is suitable.
We meet in the Leys Park Road Car Park and practice car-sharing to travel to the start of walks.
