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.
Walks are organised every two weeks, either Saturday or Sunday, in addition to occasional mid-week walks. In the summer programme, evening walks of 2-3 hours are scheduled during the week.
We walk throughout the year, with a varied programme, ranging from leisurely, often local routes, 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, central Dunfermline, and practice car-sharing to travel to the start of walks. It is advisable to check the Ramblers Scotland website before joining any walk, in case of any last-minute changes. For walks that are some distance from Dunfermline, and for all hillwalks (usually B+ and A grades), please contact the leader directly beforehand.

There are some large and beautiful beaches, and a hinterland of crystal-clear rivers, wooded and moorland lochs, all backed by dramatic peaks. The Torridon and Fisherfield mountains, on either side of Loch Maree, are only a short drive away.
Further details will appear in due course.Meanwhile, please have a look at the accommodation in Gairloch and area.
