Inverdovat lies to the West of the coastal town of Tayport and is ideal for walking.

This is a favourite walk of our lively Boxer puppy Loki and one we have walked together often.

The walk begins at a rough siding on a minor road connecting Tayport to Newport-On -Tay through the surrounding farmland. There is enough space to park two small cars but take care not to block the road.

Walk Fife Note: This route can be very muddy and uneven and may have some minor obstacles. This not suitable for those with limited walking ability.

Leaving the starting point head into Chester Hill Wood. There is a track marked on the map but it has been left to grow wild but you can still see the direction it heads in. Follow the edge of the wood until it loops around until it meets the Causewayhead steading. Take care to keep to the track around the steading following it to the road.

When the track meets the road turn left and walk a short distance until turning right onto a track . This section of the route can be very muddy even in the better weather. Follow the track along the edge of the fields and on past Roseberry Hill and onwards down to the road.

Turn left on to the road and walk along the road for just over 1km before turning left on to a track leading you past Kirktonbarns Law. After passing the Law the track ends and you then have cut across a filed (follow the edge of the field) to join the track at the other side of the field cutting through the tiny Frithie Wood. The route then returns you back on the road you drove in on and back to your staring point.

There is plenty of wildflowers to be seen this route and plenty of places to stop and enjoy a picnic in the good weather and great for energetic dogs.

This route was shared with me by my late Father Angus who walked around the farmland surrounding Tayport for years in his retirement years and was only to happy share his routes with others so I thought it would be nice to share it with the walkers of Walk Fife.
