Scotland's Lomond Hills and Fife

The central part of Fife is dominated by the shapely Lomond Hills. Benarty Hill and Bishop Hill both overlook the peaceful waters of Loch Leven, whilst adjacent to them is West Lomond - the highest in this part of Scotland, a hill of real character and a stunning viewpoint. Its neighbour East Lomond is perhaps the most loved of the range, rising with a steep dome-like summit to the south of the picturesque and historic village of Falkland.

On the southern side the Lomond Hills slope down more gently towards some of Fife's major towns: modern Glenrothes and the older, coastal town of Kirkcaldy. This area carries reminders of its mining past, but the Fife Coastal Path continues right around the coastline, linking industrial centres, harbours and sandy beaches. The north coast around Newburgh is much less populated, sloping down into the waters of the mighty River Tay.

The Lomond Hills are Fife's most prominent landmarks and the centre of 25miles2 of moorland, lochs and farmland. The area was designated as Scotland's first Regional Park in 1986 in recognition of its importance for recreation and conservation. The area is vast with numerous access points and a huge network of paths and interesting features throughout.

The park is supported by the local community; including land managers, users, community councils and other interested organisations. The support of the many land managers is essential to keep the park open and accessible to public. As such please help us support and thank them by acting responsibly when in the hills; keep dogs on leashes, stick to the paths, and leave the hills as you find them. In the spirit of reponsible access, please follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

What Others Said...

The buffet food is excellent - such a wide variety for breakfast and dinner. Dinner always had different options every night. Food was fresh and delicious. Great service from bar and restaurant staff,Tom and Jill are amazing and a great team. They are great fun and relate so well to everyone on the holiday. They were exceptionally considerate. They were able to split the group when needed to ensure that everyone had an amazing experience. The variety of walks that they have created is perfect, every day was different, with coffee/cake stops, dramatic scenery and challenging walks to suit the group's ability. They adapted the walks when it looked like we might have a wet day, so that we wouldn't miss out on one of the best walks of the week. Everyone in the group really appreciated the efforts they took to make our holiday fabulous Everything was excellent location, walks, hotel, transfers to/from airport/walks, walk leaders and even the weather. Best walking holiday ever!!
