The village of Kettlebridge sits in the rich farmland of the Howe of Fife and offers a lot for the walker.
This short walking route takes you on a leisurely stroll through the surrounding farmland.
The route begins in Hall Street which is where our little group of walkers chose to meet for this route but it can be started anywhere within the village. Cars can be parked roadside and the village can be reached by the local bus service.
This route is just over 6km and involves muddy and uneven tracks and may not be suitable for all walkers. There are legs that involve walking along farm roads so please keep dogs well leashed and youngsters close at hand.
Leaving the starting point head down to the main Cupar Road (A914) and turn right. Follow the road until you see a pathways sign on the left (opposite the junction of Cupar Road and North Street). Carefully cross the road onto this path. The path follows the direction of the Kettle Burn and takes you past Holekettle Farm and on to a farm road. Turn left and follow the road as it makes its way SE.
The road eventually reaches a fork where you need to turn sharp left and follow the farm track for approximately 1km until you reach a more substantial road onto which you turn left and follow it as it works its way towards the Cupar Road (A914).
Cross over the road, turn left and walk a short distance to the junction and turn right. This will lead you into Kettlebridge on Main Street. At the church turn left and follow Rumdewan Terrace through the village before turning left on to North Street. Turn into Mid Street and after 100m turn left and walk back to your starting point.
This is a gentle and easy going walk that can enjoyed all year round but it can be a challenge to stay clean and dry in the wetter and windier months so be prepared.
