Wrap up for a winter walk

We love getting wrapped up and popping on our walkiing boots for a long winter walk. You can’t deny that winter walking makes you feel exhilerated.

There are plenty of fantastic places to go in Fife for a scenic walk to wake up your senses. From hiking on the Lomond Hills, following woodland forest trails including Falkland Estate, or enjoying some of Fife's parks and coastal path, there are plenty of places to enjoy a winter walk.

Take in the scenery

Fife can look it’s loveliest in the winter. Snow-speckled hills and frosty forests can make the landscape look truly enchanting. Fife is also surrounded by a stunning coastline which becomes a canvas for vibrant winter sunsets and sunrises over the winter months, making it perfect for keen photographers.
