Trails leaflet unveiled
Saline and District Heritage Society has unveiled its latest trails leaflet round Saline and Steelend (click here for full size version - pdf file).
The latest leaflet gives walkers info on two routes that both start in the car park in Steelend although they can be followed in reverse from Saline.
The first route follows the signposted core path towards and turns off towards The Temple with spectacular views to the south. It skirts the bottom of Saline Golf Club before exiting to the B914 road to Saline.
The second route follows the core path as far as Cowstrandburn and returns to the route to The Temple via Bandrum. Users can then either return to Steelend or take the Temple route.
The leaflet follows a lot of work by the Society and funding from Fife Council and Fife Charities Trust.
It was welcomed by David Chisholm, chair of Saline and Steelend Community Council who said: “Saline and District Heritage Society have made great progress in raising awareness of our heritage through the opening of the popular museum, remarkable restoration of the old graveyard and the trails leaflets, not forgetting the monthly talks.
This particular leaflet is particularly welcome as it encourages use of really attractive areas. Importantly, there are great catering facilities at Saline Golf Club and the Brightside Cafe at Bandrum.”
Saline and District Heritage Society holds its monthly talks in Saline Church Hall on the 3rd Wednesday with refreshments at 7pm followed by the talk at 7.30. Details of speakers can be found in the Community Bulletin and Saline and Steelend web site (www.salinesteelend.org).
