Kirkcaldy Walking Festival 2021
31st July, 2021 - 8th August, 2021
We are delighted to announce that Kirkcaldy Walking Festival is back for summer 2021 with a programme of led walks taking place from 31st July – 8th August.
Local organisations will be leading free walks at locations across Kirkcaldy. The programme contains both short and more challenging routes, as well as themed walks that include wildlife, heritage, health and family fun. The programme of walks can be downloaded by clicking here or by clicking the programme below.
Our annual walking festival aims to encourage people to get out and walk more, which is great for your health and the planet. The festival is also a great chance to meet new people and learn about some fantastic local organisations. We hope that by helping you to explore your local area on foot, you will be encouraged to walk for short journeys rather than take the car.
As usual, we have been delighted by how much support we have had from local organisations – a huge thank you to Kirkcaldy Civic Society, Tony Wilson, Seafield Environmental Group, Home-Start Kirkcaldy, Active Fife, Fife Out and About Walking Group and The Dance Shack for signing up to deliver walks.
All walks will be delivered in-line with up-to-date Covid-19 guidelines. To book, participants should follow instructions for each walk in the programme.
Printed programmes are available from Greener Kirkcaldy’s building on East Fergus Place or from selected venues around Kirkcaldy.
Kirkcaldy Walking Festival is coordinated by Greener Kirkcaldy as part of their Scottish Government Climate Challenge Fund project “Let’s move up a gear!”, which aims to promote active travel and raise climate change awareness. Now in its fourth year, the walking festival was forced to move online in 2020, but we are delighted to be back with face-to-face walks for 2021!
