Weddersbie Hill sits to the East of the village of Auchtermuchty and offers some good walking all year round.
This walking route is fairly long at 12.5 km and is one I used to get myself fit before attempting the West Highland Way in 2015.
This route is not suitable for people with limited walking ability as there are sections that involve rough terrain and the ground can be unstable. The route begins in the village itself and there is plenty of on-street parking for those driving to the start point.
The route follows a number of farm tracks and minor roads which are popular with cyclists so care has to be taken. The route meanders through the countryside and heads towards the woodland at the base of the hill.
There are plenty of alternative trails through the woodland that you can take at this stage of the trip but I found that this one is best suited for me as the paths are stable and easy walking. To get to the summit of the hill you have to leave the path and cut through the woodland. The summit is marked by a Ordnance Survey Trig Point (OS Grid NO 258 144). If you not keen on leaving the path you can follow it around the hill until it meets with the route shown.
The return leg of the route sees you leaving the woodland and headed on to a minor road which joins up with the A91 which you follow back to your start point in Auchtermuchty.
This route can be enjoyed all year round and offers some nice views across the Fife countryside.
