Sean explores the shores of Tentsmuir in this episode of the Walk Fife Podcast.
Tentsmuir Forest is a great place for the walker looking for stunning scenery and peaceful surroundings.
As he wanders along the shore exploring the dunes and woodland, Sean chats to us about the latest news from Walk Fife and takes some time to answer some of he many questions sent in to us by listeners of the podcast.
Competition winner announced
Sean announces the winner of our competition to win a Garmin Etrex touch 25 which closed to entries recently. We asked “Where in Fife can you find ancient Pictish carvings” and the answer is of course Wemyss Caves.
The Wemyss Caves lie on the shoreline at East Wemyss. There were originally 12 caves along this stretch of the coast but due to changes in the environment and human activity there are now only a few that can be visited. Pictish symbols are carved into the walls of four of the caves.
The carvings were first recognised as being the work of the Picts a little over 100 years ago and since then they have been studied and recorded by archaeologists and historians. Unfortunately due to human activity, erosion and in some cases vandalism some of the carvings have been destroyed. You can learn more by visiting the Save the Wemyss Ancient Caves Society website at http://www.wemysscaves.co.uk/
The winner of the GPS is Brian Hunter. The three runners up were Dawn Taylor, Elaine McPherson and Richard Miller.
The Walk Fife team were all stunned at the response we have had for places for our recently run workshop. We had 381 people apply for one of the 20 available places proving that our new system is working and will be adopted for the workshops we will be hosting over the course of 2018. The team would like to say a big thank to everyone who shared the details about the workshop with the walkers of Fife. We will share news of the 2018 soon.
The questions for this episode are fairly mixed and include topics such as where Sean’s favourite place to walk in Scotland is, volunteering for Walk Fife, sharing walking club news and our Walk Fife Top Stop Award.
