The village of Kingseat lies outside of Dunfermline and is the starting point for many walking routes.
This route is one that I have walked many times as part of my fitness programme.
The route begins in Kingseat where there are plenty of places to park your car. You can reach the village by the regular bus service as well.
The route leaves the village and heads along the path that follows the Cuddyhouse Road before turning right on to a farm access road that leads you through farmland.
The path crosses the motorway way via a footbridge and you will see the Hill of Beath to your left. This hill offers some great views over the surrounding area. If you have the time and energy it is well worth climbing and there is a route already shared on Walk Fife showing the best way to approach it. http://www.walkfife.com/maps-routes/hill-of-beath/
The path follows the motorway down to a second footbridge which you will cross over the motorway again and follow until it reaches the main Kingseat Road.
This next section involves road walking so please take care especially as youngsters tend to speed along this road. The road does have narrow grass verges on to which you can step to avoid traffic. In general the road is fairly quiet during the week.
Follow the road and you will be taken back into Kingseat and to your starting point.
This route isn’t going to win awards for the most interesting but I have found it to be great for improving my general fitness.
