This walking route takes you on a walk from Lower Largo and through Upper Largo and returns you to the coast.

I discovered this walk shortly after moving into the area and I walk it regularly with my two energy packed dogs.

The route begins in the coastal car park that sits on the Fife Coastal Path where there is plenty of parking available.

The walk takes you away from the coastline on to a rough track that follows the Largo Burn towards Upper Largo. The track gives way to a pathway that follows the main road (A917) through the village and out into the countryside. The walking is easy going but take care as the road is fairly busy.

Shortly after leaving the village you will see a small wood in front of you. Head towards it. This known as Keil’s Den - www.woodlandtrust.org.uk

This section of the route meanders through this small woodland back towards the coast. There are plenty of places here to stop for a picnic and if you pick the right time of the year, there is plenty to see including bluebells and plenty of local birdlife.

Leaving the woodland you head back toward Lower Largo following the road. The route then takes you through the village towards the Fife Coastal Path which leads you back to your starting point.

There are sections in this walk which can be muddy so be prepared.
