Kirkcaldy Winter Walking Festival
We want to encourage you to wrap up warm, get outdoors and connect with nature in the dreary winter months, so we are re-launching our online programme of walks for winter 2021! The programme has a good mix of self guided routes, so you should be able to find one to suit you, no matter what your needs. The walks were originally submitted by a number of local groups and organisation as part of our Walking Festival in August 2020.
Going out when it’s dark and cold might seem unappealing, but taking a break from our screens, and getting some natural light can really improve your mood. As well as improving our physical health, getting outside, doing some exercise and spending some time in nature leads to better sleep, reduced anxiety, reduces your risk of chronic health conditions, improves your immune system and simply makes us happier.
Thank you to Kirkcaldy Ramblers, Fife ABE, Fife Walking, Seafield Environmental Group, Homestart Kirkcaldy, Langtoun Tots, Bums Off Seats, Tony Wilson, Kirkcaldy Civic Society and Walk On Kirkcaldy for providing routes.
