Lower/Upper Largo

A bit overcast, with some rain to start with but with a good wind behind us 10 walkers started from the beach at Lower Largo following the Largo Burn to Upper Largo. We spoke about the abundance of berries on the trees and bushes and we wondered what this indicated for the weather for the winter months. We spotted Brambles, Roman, Hips, Haws and Sloe. This then led onto a discussion about Sloe Gin, currently maturing in a living room cupboard somewhere in Kirkcaldy.

On reaching Upper Largo we walked along South Fews admiring the lovely properties with amazing views over farm land and the Forth. Crossing a Main Street we walked up North Fews passing the lovely wee Kirkton of Largo Primary School and the beautifully kept cemetery. Taking care on this narrow road we eventually came to a crossroads where there was a brilliant road sign, see picture. It reminded me of the song: 

Agadoo-doo-doo, push pineapple, shake the tree,

Agadoo-doo-doo, push pineapple, grind coffee,

To the left, to the right, jump up and down and to the knees,

Come and dance every night, sing with the hula melody.

Turning off the road we entered and walked through the lovely Kiel’s Den before again approaching the main road. Crossing this we headed down Harbour Wynd and joined the old railway track which took us back to our cars

We had a great coffee stop at the Upper Largo Hotel, where the scones and service were brilliant. Definitely on our list for a return visit. Ending our lovely afternoon out with our walkers prayer we then headed back to our cars
