An MTB ride from Leven to Muddy Boots Balmalcolm

Fife has a load of paths called the core path network They are well publicised and maps are free to print from the net.  A site details latest closures or diversions.

With maps 27 and 43 in my grubby little paws Carol and I headed from Leven to Muddy Boots on the MTB’s.  We left from the Broom and headed up the Kennoway road taking path 375 from Wester Durie to Bonnybank.  In by the Inn and onto paths 377 to Balgriebank and 267 to Devon Wood and Clatto Hill this is the worst stretch as the ground is v rutted and muddy not deal for biking!  A nice descent from Clatto Hill leads you to Clatto farm and onto a road for a short distance.  Into  the left following signs for Burnturk.  You go by Downfield and Middlefield cottages once more on a minor road for a short time till you come into Burnturk village.  From Burnturk you take the path from Kettlehill and Airdits farm this path leads you straight into the back of Muddy Boots.

A good ride of 9.7 miles with just over 1000 ft of climbing.  We returned using a mix of roads and paths.
