‘Friends’ Annual

Kinghorn Community Centre,
7-9pm, Friday, 26th May.

Quiz, photo-competition, grub.

All ‘Friends of CRCT’ are most welcome to come to the annual gathering. Please do your best to come along.  Our new style meeting is going to be more of a social event. Along with the annual Photo Competition we are going to have a ‘Mystery’ quiz to see who can identity most places in the mystery pictures.  Tea and coffee plus nibbles will be provided but if you prefer, you can bring your own drink.

‘Come and Try’ Day

It is hard to believe that it is ten years since the first ‘Come and Try’ day took place.  It began as a way to celebrate the completion of the new jetty at Kinghorn Loch.  It is now an annual event each May.  This year was blessed with glorious sunshine.  The range of sports on offer continues to grow, in addition to the canoeing, sailing, and radio-controlled yachts, the coastal rowing team came along.  All the water sports were kept busy throughout the afternoon.  There were lots of families that also took advantage of the sunshine to visit the Earthship, wander through the woods and watch the swan on its nest and two families of mallard swimming past.

Swan to raise cygnets on its own

Sadly the male swan has had to be put down after getting tangled in discarded fishing twine.  The female is on her nest with five eggs.  We hope she will be able to raise her offspring and may leave in winter and return with a new mate.

The Swan Bench returns.

The swan bench was damaged but is now returned, thanks to the good work of Gordon Reid.  A favourite with the children.

 were panoramic and we returned via Glassmount House where we enjoyed a very warm welcome indeed and a walk through all the spring flowers. Other walks went as far as Coaltown of Wemyss, and the walk from Kinghorn to Burntisland, returning along Pettycur  Beach, at a very low tide allowed the group  to walk around the Black Rock with ease. The walk along the old ‘Great North Road’ may have been the escape route for Mary Queen of Scots from Loch Leven Castle. The walk up Dunearn Hill to the Iron Age Fort site included an invite to see the new born lambs at Dunearn Farm.  We would like to thank all the landowners for the warm welcome and keen-ness to make the visits interesting.

The weather this spring has been great.  The festival began with a walk up to Stoneyhall Hill.  The views from the top

The Walking Group has enjoyed some great walks so far this year, many have been in fair sunny weather.  The group is friendly and welcoming and usually has between 8 -12 folk. Walks take in some excellent scenery and views in the local area which looks different with each season. The May walk visited the woodland at Balwearie and Invertiel which was clothed in bluebells and wild garlic.
