Craigencalt Rural Community Trust recently announced their programme of walks that will form part of their Spring Mini Walking Festival.
The Mini Walking Fest will run from 11th April to 25th April and it is hoped that the festival will attract visitors to come and enjoy a day out and get involved in various activities.
The aim of the festival is to get people out enjoying the local area and the planned walks will cover the coastline from Aberdour to East Wemyss and will also stretch inland across the hills and will allow walkers to enjoy some of the splendid scenery of the Kingdom of Fife.
Taking part in a festival like this is a great way to get to meet new people and learn more about an area of Fife that is very walker friendly. Well behaved dogs will be welcomed unless otherwise stated in the programme.
There will not be walks on every day because the event is designed to have rest days which will enable people to manage all of the walks over the two weeks if they wish .
Walks for all
The festival organisers has created a programme of walks that will be suitable for most walkers. To help people to pick the route that are most suited for their abilities, the Festival walks have been graded as follows:
Leisurely – Approximately 2 miles around Kinghorn, Burntisland or Craigencalt and Kinghorn Loch, taken at a relaxed pace, spending time at places of interest, and suitable for family groups.
Short – Walking experience isn’t necessary for these walks of up to 3 miles (5 km), taken at a relaxed pace, often spending time at places of interest, and suitable for family groups.
Medium – 3 to 6 miles (up to 10 km) distance. These walks generally follow well defined paths, though likely to be quite hilly. These walks are suitable for most reasonably fit people.
Long – over 6 miles (10 km) requiring a good level of fitness.
The festival hopes that these grades will enable walkers to select a suitable walk for their capability, interest and enjoyment.
