Blairhall sits west of Dunfermline and is a former mining village.
This short walking route is favourite of my mother and her dogs and is one my daughters and I enjoy walking with them.
This walk does feature some road walking and uneven dirt tracks in sections so is not suitable for all walkers.
The route begins at a parking spot next to the village recycling point but it can be started at any point in the village. There is enough parking for a few cars and the start point can be reached via the local bus service.
Leaving the start point the route cuts through the village and out via a tunnel to the farm land beyond. The track is easy to follow and takes you across the farmland.
The path then gives way to the road (A907) which you then follow for a short distance. There is no pathway along this stretch but the grass verge is wide enough to step upon to avoid passing traffic.
Eventually you will reach a farm track on the left which you will then follow. This takes you back into the farmland and a trail that will take you on the homeward stretch of the walk. The nearby farm is fairly busy so be alert for farm vehicle and equipment.
The final leg of the walk is again road walk and great care has to be taken especially if you have young children or dogs with you. Keep them close at hand as the traffic using this road tend to do so very quickly.
Entering the village you will be a short distance from your start point. There are number of geocaches hidden in the area. This is a nice walk especially in the lighter evenings.
