Walkers and cyclists in Fife can now share their favourite routes and paths, thanks to a community website www.smartcommunityfife.org.uk, where they can upload previously unpublished walking and cycling routes. This new online service was recently launched by local MP, Ming Campbell, at the start of one of the online routes in Falkland.
Each route is accompanied by a photo and description. The resource includes varied routes of different lengths and difficulties, from a short hidden walk in Falkland, to a challenging, but beautiful, walk along the old drovers’ road between Auchtermuchty and Abernethy.
Peter Winterborn, Chairperson of Smart Community Fife, says: “www.smartcommunityfife.org.uk provides the latest locally-written news and events, as well as a frequently updated guide to what’s on and what to do in the area. Now we want to build on the success of the site by responding to recent survey results, requesting maps of local walking and cycling routes. Our free, easy-to-use on-line system allows site users to share favourite routes with others. We are keen for people to continue uploading their favourite routes in the future; with their help, we can keep the information on Fife routes both relevant and interesting.”
Routes can be seen and uploaded to www.smartcommunityfife.org.uk/routes
