This route follows an old railway path - also known as the West Fife Way - from Clackmannan nr Alloa to Dunfermline, linking Routes 76 and 1.

Route 764 (the West Fife Way) starts just off the B910 to the north-east of Clackmannan and follows the course of the former Dunfermline to Alloa railway.

Heading west on the cycleway, it’s an easy run to Dunfermline. The path heads over the open and wooded country, passing close by the villages of Blairhall, Oakley and Carnock, which all offer refreshments.

You have the option of diverting to the mountain bike tracks in Devilla Forest or onto minor roads to join National Route 76 along the coast of the Forth Estuary.

Look out for the Kingdom of Fife Millennium Cycleway signs with the green diamond. These mark where the Dunfermline-Charlestown-Limekilns and the Cairneyhill-Crossford-Crombie routes meet the cycleway.

Both these routes will take you down to the shore.

If you continue on the railway path, you arrive at the west side of Dunfermline just south of the A907 on William Street.

From here, Route 764 is signed on-road through the centre of town, before joining another railway path at Leys Park Road car park.

This path runs for one mile before ending at the junction with Route 1 on Whitefield Road, opposite the Queen Margaret railway station.
