Join us in the latest episode of the Walk Fife Podcast.
The wind is battering the Kingdom of Fife this week but not in Walk Fife’s cosy office.
Sean updates us with the latest news and events from across the Kingdom and from the Fife walking community.
Equipment and Book Reviews
The Walk Fife team and members from our community have been sharing reviews of book that we have read and equipment we have been using through our website since we began. The website is open for anyone wishing to share their experience or enjoyment of anything walking related. If you have a something you would like to share a review of then drop us a line through the Walk Fife website or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Fife’s Top Stops
Walk Fife wants to share your Top Stops from across the whole of the Fife region. The Walk Fife Top Stop list aims to provide visitors to Fife with a comprehensive list of walker friendly cafes, restaurants, pubs and visitors centres that are ideally placed for walkers to stop off and rest while on their travels. Each Top Stop will be supplied a window sticker to allow other Walk Fife walkers to easily recognise that this stop has been listed on our website and is well worth visiting.
Fife Core Path Networks
Sean raises the topic of Fife’s Core Path Network after some members of the community contacted Walk Fife after discovering some issues in accessing some of these legally protected rights of way within the Kingdom. The Fife Core Path Network covers the whole of Fife and is based on the approved Core Path Plan which was defined by public consultation and public inquiry, as mandated by the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003. Sean talks about some issues surrounding access to these paths that the community has to highlight in order to maintain that access.
Events for walkers in Fife
The Dundee Mountain Film Festival is the UK’s longest continuous running mountain film festival. It showcases an international programme of speakers, as well as award winning films and exhibitions, mainly held in the Bonar Hall, Dundee. This year’s festival will be held on 22 – 24 November 2018.
