A new publication to encourage people to get out and about and enjoy the nature and beauty on their doorstep has been launched.

Members of the Kinghorn Pathways Group, part of Craigencalt Rural Community Trust, researched and compiled the Kinghorn Pathways Booklet so everyone who enjoys walking in the countryside can make the most of walks in their countryside and coast.

Some of the walks in the booklet are of historical interest while others highlight the wildlife or natural beauty.

Mike Gilbert, chairman of the group said: “We are very pleased with the booklet, which is pocket-sized and easy to follow. It was funded by Awards for All and Fife Environment Trust and we are grateful for their help.

“This year the Trust has been very productive and earlier in the year we published the seasonal wild flower cards which have been well received by groups and schools. We’re sure this booklet will do equally well.”

Attending the launch on Rodanbraes Path, Bill Campbell, vice chairman of Fife Access Forum, said: “The booklet is very handy and there’s the bonus that walks can be downloaded from the website.”

Mr Campbell was accompanied by members of Fife Disabled Walking Group and after the launch, they tried out one of the walks, saying they will be back for more.

Ron Edwards, chairman of CRCT, said the 36-page booklet was in demand in the Tourist Information office in Kirkcaldy and would be available from more community outlets and shops. It is free but donations are welcome. The walks are available online at www.CraigencaltTrust.org.uk.
