Ramblers Scotland has 54 walking groups across Scotland, including five thriving groups right here in Fife.
New walkers are very welcome to attend two or three walks for free to see if the Ramblers is for them. After that, there is a small membership fee.
If you’d like to go on a walk, check out the upcoming events being run by:
- St Andrews & North East Fife Ramblers
- Kirkcaldy Ramblers
- Glenrothes Ramblers
- Dunfermline and West Fife Ramblers
- Dalgety Bay and District Ramblers
As well as running group walks and social events, Ramblers members in Fife are involved in protecting and improving access in the county.
Watch this short video to learn about how the Fife members overcame a problem with a locked gate on a core path near Cardenden.
Standing up for paths and access
When Fife Ramblers found a crucial local core path blocked with locks, nails and anti-theft paint, they didn't let it go unchallenged. They campaigned hard to get the lovely off-road trail between Lochgelly and Cowdenbeath reopened - and won! We think adding core paths to Ordnance Survey maps would result in better protection and promotion of these important routes.

Ramblers Scotland has more than 6,500 members in its groups, which are run entirely by volunteers. As the representative body for walkers in Scotland and a governing body of sport, it works to promote walking, secure and facilitate access, and to develop path networks.
Ramblers Scotland played an integral role in securing Scotland’s world-class access rights under the 2003 Land Reform Act, and it now works to protect and promote those hard-won rights.
