Overview

Overview
Linear Walk Kingseat to Kelty. The walk takes in Loch Fitty and St. Ninians. We climb one of the small hills know locally as "the Walnut Whips" The area was previously an open cast mine which has been partially landscaped and now attracts wildlife and wild flowers.

Walk Description
Fife Pilgrim Way out of Kingseat to Loch Fitty & crossing the loch on a causeway. Climbing St. Ninians East via an easy spiraling path before continuing on the Fife Pilgrim Way through Blairadam woods to Kelty. Bus back to Kingseat. Bring bus passes if you have them.
