The small town of Dalgety Bay sits on the shores of the Firth of Forth and is a great place for walking.
This walking route is one that my friends Carol, Hailey, Susan and I walk often as part of our weekly exercise.
The route begins outside the Dalgety Bay Community Centre. There is a small car park next to the centre but it can be busy in the evenings.
Leave the centre and follow Regents Way towards the river. Turn left as you reach the open green space and follow the path down to where it meets Moray Way South where you will cross over the road and follow the trail down to the Fife Coastal Path.
Follow the coastal path east as it makes it’s way along the shore. This part of the route can sometimes be muddy and prone to flies so be prepared. The path leads you through small wooded area and on to the ruins of St Bridgets Kirk. The ruins are worth exploring and the view from it’s grounds over the Firth of Forth is lovely.
Leaving the ruins turn right on to the farm track leading east towards Barefoot Plantation. As you reach the woodland veer left and follow the track up to a fenced path that cuts through the fields. The fields are home to cattle and sheep so if you bring a dog with you keep it close at hand. This path is sometimes quite muddy so take care with your footing.
The path meets yet another section of the Fife Coastal Path onto which you turn left and follow it west until you reach it’s end. Turn right up the hill and follow the path past the farm down towards the church. Follow the access road from the church out on to Eastern Access Road and follow it south until you reach Moray Way North.
A short distance along Moray Way North. there are some shops on the rightwhere you can stop if you need some refreshments. Follow the road for it’s full distance and cross over the road when you reach the roundabout and in a few moments you will reach the starting point outside the Dalgety Bay Community Centre.
This is a easy 7km walk and is perfect for those who want to get in shape through walking.
