The clouds and rain have returned to the Kingdom of Fife.
The wet weather may have you sheltering at home but at least you can listen to the Walk Fife Podcast while waiting out the rain.
After a technical problem caused the lose of last week’s podcast, Sean sits down and records a new featuring news from across the Fife Walking Community along with answering questions sent in by listeners.
Kirkcaldy Walking Festival Success!
The first walking festival to be held in the Fife coastal town Kirkcaldy was a greta success if the comments and messages we received over the past few weeks are to believed. The programme of activities and events proved to be very popular with residents of the town and further afield. Hopefully this will encourage other Fife towns and organisations to host their own walking festivals in the near future.
After a few people contacted Walk Fife regarding a recent post about Sean’s 4000 mile walking challenge, Sean runs through exactly why he purposely got lost in the hills and what safety precautions were taken to prevent anything dangerous from happening and why somtimes testing your skills is important to keeping you safe when walking over the hills and through the glens of Scotland.
Hidden History of Fife Revealed
The recent spell of hot and dry weather revealed a surprising number of hidden archaeological sites throughout the Kingdom of Fife when viewed from above. Sean explains how you too can view this hidden history with a pair of binoculars and a walk up a hill.
Walk Fife Competition
Sean reminds us of the opportunity to win a pair of Leki Carbonlite Trekking Poles. We have one pair of these terrific walking poles to give away to one lucky winner and some great runner-up prizes. Sean shares the question that the answer to which will stand you in good stead to win this great prize.
The topics for the questions in this episode cover how to take advantage of the walking routes shared through the Walk Fife website without the need for digital devices and why there aren’t any proper outdoors shops in Fife.
