Fife Pilgrim Way

Posted on May 21st, 2018

Tuesday, 22nd May 7.30pm, at the NQ Community Centre.
Miranda Lorraine will be talking about “The Fife Pilgrim Way”


With a total distance of 70 miles, the route will link together many examples of the region’s medieval and pilgrim heritage, North Queensferry being one of the starting points. This talk will give us a chance to find out how the project is going and what it will mean for North Queensferry.

As many of you may know, funding has been secured to create a new and inspiring long-distance route through beautiful inland Fife.

Starting at Culross and North Queensferry, the 104 km/64 mile path takes in spectacular views of the Highlands, the Coast, Forth and Tay Estuaries and the Lomond Hills. It passes medieval landmarks, industrial landscapes and historic picturesque villages on its way to St. Andrews.

The route uses Fife’s existing network of rights of way, paths and tracks to offer varied opportunities for long distance, multi-day route supplemented by shorter walks and circular routes.

Members £2 / non members £3 – teas will be served after the talk.
