The Path, Falkland Hill

The Path - Falkland Hill or East Lomond

The Path – Falkland Hill or East Lomond

I took this photo last summer, just before they put in a cinder path from the East Lomond car park back down towards Glenrothes.

I have very mixed feelings about the new path. On one hand, access to and from Falkland Hill (or East Lomond – it’s known equally well by both names) is improved quite a lot for both older folk and those that have difficulty walking. But on the other hand, it looks so totally out of place and doesn’t fit in with the natural environment.

Having just checked all my recent photos, I’ve clearly made an effort not to include the new path in any of them. However,Β below is a photograph taken at the Glenrothes end of this walk whichΒ shows just a small portion of the cinder path.

Please let me know your opinions, cinder path or natural path?

  1. I’d prefer natural path but sometimes the cinder path will give more comforts to access it especially during the wet weather πŸ™‚ Beautiful image of the aerial view! Just stunning to see the yellow and green together as a scenery πŸ™‚
