The Cambo Circular walking trail is nice to experience all year round but wellie boots will most likely be needed in the wetter weather.

The woodland paths are often boggy so take care especially in Autumn as the fallen leaves make it even more slippery under foot.

There are some steps in their route. It is not suitable for those who have limited walking ability or wheelchairs especially in the wetter weather.

The walk starts in a shore side car park near Kingsbarn Golf Course. There are plenty of spaces and there are public toilets available. Leave the car park heading south onto the Fife Coastal Path and follow the path along the shore and the edge of the golf course. Upon reaching the footbridge turn right off the coastal path on to the track leading into the Cambo Estate.

The trail takes you along the banks of Cambo Burn and through woodland towards Cambo House. The gardens of the estate are beautiful in summer although you do have to pay a fee to visit them (you can find out more by visiting www.camboestate.com) You can bypass the gardens by following the path around the edge of the garden wall.

Eventually you reach the estate road leading you out to the main road where turning right will take back towards the start point. You can proceed this road along to Kingsbarn village and down the road you originally traveled down to the car park or you can nip off the road and follow my preferred route along the farm tracks back to the car park.

I would like to say thank you to my walking friend Amy Hall for sharing this nice little walk with me last year.
