Walks and Hikes
A stunning 50 minute walk is at your backdoor. This circular walk is all off-road, covering; grass land, farm tracks, stunning views, birdlife, farm stock and woodland.
Simply put your wellies on and head up Lindores hill – after a steep incline you reach the top which plateau’s across grassland. Sheep and cattle graze the land during some seasons so dog’s must be kept on a lead.
Walk across the plateau (passing Lindores Cross Country fences) and embrace the magnificent 360 degree views. Look north and see the River Tay running between Perthshire and Tayside with the backdrop of the Grampian Mountains.
Look south and enjoy the Lomond hills (also known as the ‘Paps of Fife’) which tower above acres of rolling Fife countryside.
To finish the circuit from the summit meander down the hill past woodland looking out for pheasants, horses, deer and buzzards until you arrive at the farm. Then it’s a short 8 minute walk back from the farm to the Lodge.
Fife Coastal Path – Is one of Scotland’s Great Trails and it starts (or ends) at Newburgh waterfront, 1.5 miles from our farm. The Fife Coastal Path runs from the Tay Estuary in the north and stretches for 117 miles to the Forth Estuary in the south. The path is clearly waymarked (with the circular logo shown) and offers a range of walking experiences from the easy and level, to the wild and demanding. Whether done in bite sized chunks or as a long distance route there is definitely something for everyone. (click on map to enlarge)
Falkland, ‘East Lomond Summit’ – we love this 4 mile walk, doable in trainers and starting in historical Falkland, home of Falkland Palace built by the Stuart Kings. The walk meanders past a fall, a den and takes you to the East Lomond summit offering you widespread views over Fife farmland and Falkland village.
Perthshire, The Hermitage – A conifer and deciduous wooded gorge with natural features including the River Braan and Ossian’s Hall. The drive here is well worth it. There are different walk routes including short walks for people with walking sticks. The walks are very beautiful and meander past waterfalls with leaping salmon, pleasant countryside views and the lovely Rumbling bridge. 29 miles from the farm.
