Kinghorn







Lovely sunshine was what was on order and we weren't disappointed. 13 walkers left the church heading along the coast to todays destination, Kinghorn. The walk started with a slight uphill climb with Kinghorn Golf course on our right and the spectacular sea views across the Forth on our left. It was such a clear day, you could see for miles. Our first memorable encounter was a mounted policeman on his horse.


We continued along the path where we soon encountered our first views of the Craigencault Ecology centre and stopped for our obligatory photo.








Time to move on, we continued along the trail until we reached what was reputed to be the home of the last of the Kinghorn witches where we stopped to have a look at the coins pressed into the walls of the ruin.


On we travelled, crossing the road which would take us on to the ecology centre itself, stopping for a moment to have a look at the plaque in the wall commemorating the opening of the Roddanbraes path in 2014. On reaching the Ecology Centre we paused again, basking in the sunshine at the loch watching the ducks and the beautiful swan with her cygnets, wishing we had brought a picnic. We spent a short while wandering the ecology centre until it was time to head for our coffee stop, The Carousel, where our tea, coffee and lovely cakes were awaiting us. A fitting end to a great day with a great bunch, some of us vowing to go back, suitably summed up in the wall of the ecology centre.
