This circular walking route takes in two Fife hills, Tay Mount and Green Hill.
I found this route when bagging trig points last summer and it is a pleasant countryside walk especially in summer.
The route begins at an entrance way to a field at the base of Tay Mount hill. There is enough space for one car and please take care when parking to allow the farmer access to the field. You can begins this route further away in Hazelton Walls where there are more opportunities for parking.
This route is not suitable for walkers with limited walking abilities.
Leaving the start point make your way through the field towards the hill itself. There is a track that you can follow which can be muddy so take care. Follow the track upwards until you reach the second field where you can then walk up to the trig point (OS Grid NO 3479 22442).
From the trig point make your way south down the hill and head back on to the track. Follow the track through Lewes Wood until you reach the farm track which will take you to the main road. Take care on the road as there is no pathway.
Follow the road to Hazelton Walls and turn right at the crossroads and head back towards the starting point. As you reach the start pint cross the road and follow the track to the second hill of the route - Green Hill.
There is a easy to follow track which leads you to the top of the hill where you will find the remains of a cairn which marks the top of the hill. The part of the route is prone to midges so make sure you pack repellent.
Follow the track to return to your start point. For geocachers there are a few caches nearby which are easy to bag while you are in the area (Hint - there is one very near the start point).
This a enjoyable short walk for those who want to blow off the cobwebs.
