There are several good short walks around the coastal town of Dalgety Bay.
After moving into the area many years ago I set myself the task of finding as many as I could and now I am sharing them with you through Walk Fife.
This route begins at the Dalgety Bay Sports Centre and is a short circular route that is suitable for most walkers but because it can get quite muddy I have rated this as Grade 3 route.
Leave the centre and cross the road on to Chandlers Rise. Follow the drive up the slope and looks for the footpath leading into the woods. The woods offer some very pleasant walking especially in the spring and summer months. There is plenty of things to see for children and the woods are popular with dog walkers and runners.
Follow the woodland path over the hill until it exits the wood. Turn left and walk down to the Fife Coastal Path. At this point you can turn left and walk back into the town and your stating point or you can turn right and follow this route.
The views over the Firth of Forth are beautiful all year round no matter the weather. Follow the coastal path west and down into Inverkeithing’s Ballast Bank Park. The park is a good stop if you have children with you as the playwark is brilliant. If you have a dog then the park offers them some nice open spaces to run about in. Follow the road along the edge of the park and turn into Fraser avenue.
Follow the street up the hill (note: there is a small Stephens Bakery half way up the street) until it meets All Street. Turn right and follow this road past the schools and out to meet the A921. Turn right and follow the foot path back towards Dalgety Bay. At the roundabout turn right and follow the road back to the starting point at the leisure centre.
This is a nice and easy going walk and ideal when the weather is fine.
