Pitmedden Forest lies between the towns of Abernethy and Auctermuchty and is a wonderful place to walk and explore.
This a 4-5 hour long walking route to cover and is fairly accessible for many experienced walkers but not advisable for walkers of limited ability.
The route begins and ends in a Forestry Commission car park OS Grid NO 1885 1411. This woodland is popular with mountain bike riders and the car park can be very busy at the weekends.
The route snakes it’s way through the forest and is a very pleasant in spring and summer. I walk this route regularly with my dogs and grandkids to tire them all out but more often or not I am the one left exhausted.
The tracks are well trodden and fairly even. Care must be taken to avoid mountain bike riders as they charge through the forest at high speed.
Route shared with Walk Fife by Donald Cameron.
