Three enticing trails wind through Blairadam Wood, an attractive mix of mighty spruces and colourful beech woodland.
William Adam, the noted Scottish architect, built Blairadam House here in the 1730s and landscaped the surrounding estate. He also built pits to extract coal.
Follow the trails to spot red squirrels, lofty trees, elegant bridges and old mine workings.
On dark evenings you might even glimpse a ghostly miner, or the fabled beast of Blairadam.
Blairadam Wood lies close to the M90 motorway near Kelty in Fife. It is easy to reach from Junction 4.
Take the B914 west from Kelty (signposted Dollar). After about 500 yards (0.5km), turn right into the Blairadam car park. You can park here and walk or cycle to the start of the trails. Alternatively, follow the road through the wood for about ½ mile (1km) to reach Clentry car park.
