The Kingdom of Fife has lots to offer walkers this summer.
Sean lets us know about some upcoming events that will get people out walking and exploring Fife.
We news from around Fife, advice and answers to some questions sent in about Sean’s waking challenge.
Burntisland Heritage Walks
To celebrate Burntisland Civic Week a guided evening historic walk will take place on Wednesday 20th June at 7.00pm. The walk winds around the centre of Burntisland, visiting the Burgh Chambers, the historic Parish Church, and Rossend Castle. This walk also takes place every Wednesday at 2pm during July and August.
On Saturday 23rd June at 11am the circular Outer Heritage Walk takes place and takes the walker from the High Street, to the golf course, across The Binn, and back via Kirkton Churchyard and Rossend Castle. This walk also takes place on the last Friday of July, August and September at 1.30pm.
Kirkcaldy Walking Festival
Kirkcaldy will be hosting it’s very first walking festival this coming July. The festival will run from the 14th through to the 22nd and will offer a something for every walker. The free festival will allow walkers to explore the coastal path, observe the well known seals basking on the shore alongside Seafield as well as many other activities all guaranteed to be enjoyable, informative and environmentally friendly. A fun and family-friendly festival of walking!
Lochbagging in Fife
Sean mentioned loch bagging in the last episode of our podcast and in this show he shares that we now have a new page on the Walk Fife website dedicated to this quirky and fun pastime. John Crawford the originator of Lochbagging very kindly produced a page for our community so they can get the bug to get out there and bag some lochs.

Sean shares a warning about fake branded walking poles that are being sold through Amazon Marketplace and shares some advice on how to avoid falling foul of the counterfeiter and why fakes can potentially dangerous to the walker.
4000 Mile Questions
Sean has gathered together some of the most often asked questions about his 4000 mile walking challenge and answers them and explains certain aspects of the challenge that some listeners may not be aware of.
