St Fort Hill overlooks the small coastal town of Wormit on the banks of the River Tay.
The hill offers several gentle walks around it and this one was shared with me by a local last summer.
The route begins at the end of Ericht Road where the street meets a countryside track. There are plenty of places to park you car nearby and the village can be reached through the local bus service.
The track leaves the village and heads up the base of the hill and towards a wood. Just as you reach the corner of the woodland head in to it and follow a rough path until you reach a well established woodland trail. Follow the trail as it arcs around towards the top of the hill and meets the edge of the fields.
Crossing over into the field follow the boundary up the slope and eventually you will approach the top of the hill. The top of the hill is not marked in any way. The fields can be muddy and sometimes have livestock so be prepared and if you have a dog keep it on it’s leash.
After leaving the top the route then loops downwards and meets up with a farm track which you follow down towards the main road (A92). As you reach the road the route then lops back into the the woods where you can follow the woodland trail back to your entry point and onwards back to your original staring point.
The route takes around 90 minutes to walk at a easy going pace and I would rate as being a Grade 3 walk and it is best suited for the warmer drier months.
Route shared with Walk Fife by Tom Cree.
