Roddanbraes and Standing Stane Road

An easy 3.5  to 4 mile walk starting from Kinghorn Loch. Although the first part of this walk can be a bit muddy and uneven underfoot, the latter half is on very quiet roads which are also good for cycling as they see very little traffic.

Start from one of the car parks at Kinghorn Loch (there are a number to choose from). From the north side of the loch walk west past the Earthship building using the woodland paths around the lochside. When you join a surfaced track turn left heading down towards the main road. On your right hand side you will see a footpath signed for Roddanbraes. Take this path which leads to ruin at Roddanbraes via the Troll Bridge.

After Roddanbraes the path continues along the edge of an agricultural field (stick the path don’t walk across the crops) and then across a grassy field to join the Common Road path from Burntisland. Turn right on to the Common Road and follow it up hill for about 3/4km until it reaches the public road. Turn right on to this road which is known as the Standing Stane Road. After about 1/2 km look across the field on your left to spot the two standing stanes. Continue on along the road for a further 1km to a crossroads.

At the crossroads turn right on to Kissing Tree Lane. You will see the two kissing trees on each side of the road. Walk along this road for just over 1km which is a bit undulating until you reach a farm track on right with a sign for Craigencalt. Turn right on to this track and follow it round to the left passing some quaint cottages, then downhill through Craigencalt Farm back to your start point.
