Kennoway is a starting point for many good walking routes.
This looped walk was shared with me by my friend Jan and is one I have walked it often with my dog Marpa.
The route begins on the outskirts of Kennoway but you can start anywhere in the town. There are plenty of places to park your car and the town can be reached by the local bus service. There is some road walking involved in this route.

Leave the starting point and walk along Cupar Road towards the hamlet of Bonnybank. Take the third turning on the left just before the Bonnybank Inn and follow the road for a short distance until you reach a farm track on the right. This is signposted as the path to Porters Brae.
Follow the track as it makes it’s way through the farmland and past Balgriebank Farm (take care here as the farm can be busy). Shortly after passing the farm the track veers right and eventually meets a another track where you need to turn left.
Follow the track as it heads into and through Torloisk Wood. In the warmer make sure you take plenty of midge repellent and in the winter make sure you are prepared for muddy conditions.
As you leave the wood you will meet up with a road onto which you have to turn left. Take care on this stretch as it can be busy and there is only a narrow grass verge to step up onto to avoid traffic. Follow this road for approximately 800m before turning left on to a much quieter country road that passing the Quarry on the right. There is a geocache near to this turning which those of you interested in geocaching may be able to find (GC46CE1).
Follow the road down to Bonnybank and when you meet the Cupar Road turn right and this will lead you back to your starting point.
