The Shore Road between Torryburn and Crombie Point is a tarmac footpath which widens to become a narrow road with some impressive sized homes to the left. It runs along the Firth of Forth and on a clear day you will be able to make out the illustrious skyline of the Grangemouth Refinery. On reaching Crombie Point you leave the Shore Road to return to the start via peaceful country roads on higher ground.
Buggy friendly walk (prepare for some uphill pushing and one steep downhill section)
Car park just off B9037/Main Street, Torryburn at the play park KY12 8LT

Route: From the parking area head towards the bay and turn left onto Shore Road. Continue along Shore Road until you reach Crombie Point (signposted) just before the Defence Munitions Depot. Turn left to head uphill on a minor road taking you out through open farmland. Turn left at the first fork and left again at the end of the road onto a farm track. This leads to a steep downhill section of footpath between two stone walls. You will emerge back onto Shore Road. Turn right and retrace your steps to the car park.

We were lucky to get out in between rain showers today to enjoy a glimpse of the big yellow ball in the sky which hadn’t been seen for several days! Many of the walks I have done so far have been around Ayrshire so it was really nice to try somewhere different whilst in Fife visiting my besto.
