CRCT has produced a Kinghorn Pathways Booklet which is available for web download or at one of our information boards on our paths. The booklet provides a set of local walks, for both within the village and outside, and vary from short ambles to 10 or more mile hikes. Several are suitable for horses and cycles, and some are wheelchair friendly -
Remember that you do not have to stick to the pathways, but avoid crop fields. Dogs enjoy the space but cattle do not normally like dogs. For your own safety do not take a dog into a field of cattle. The fields are generally accessible from late autumn through to April. This is a wonderful time to enjoy the openness around Kinghorn and Burntisland. Buzzards abound and eider duck and seals on the sea are matched by swans, pochard and coots on Kinghorn Loch, while large numbers of waders live on Pettycur Bay sands and come inland on the high tide.
When you go out and about in the countryside remember that you need to do so in a responsible manner. Your main responsibilities are:
(1) Take responsibility for your own actions -
(2) Respect other people’s privacy and peace of mind -
(3) Care for your environment.
(4) Keep your dog under proper control.
