Route Description

The West Fife Way route 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, where you arrive just south of the A907 on William Street. The cycleway heads over open and wooded country, passing close by the villages of Blairhall, Oakley and Carnock, which all offer refreshments.

You also 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 coast.
