Project background

The Scottish Rights of Way and Access Society has been awarded £25,000 (2013) to undertake the detailed planning, design and costing, and landowner negotiations, necessary to create a new long-distance walking, cycling and horse riding route between Dunfermline and St Andrews, to be known as the Pilgrims Way. The project will take forward the long standing ambition to develop such a route, previously identified in the Fife Access Strategy and Fife Core Path Plan.

Fife Council has been awarded £16,845 (March 2014) to further develop the Fife Pilgrimage Route. This project follows on from the previously funded CSGN project which looked at the possible development (and route options) of a long distance pathway across Fife, from St. Andrews to Dunfermline, called the Pilgrims Route. This phase of the project will implement works that have been identified within the urban areas of the route and will focus on path improvements in and around Crosshill, Lochore, Balcurvie and Kennoway, Fife. The improvements will also enhance access from these communities to Lochore Meadows Country Park.
