    After the initial short but steep climb up the steps, the views start to open out back across Loch Ore. Take it slow and steady and you'll be rewarded with fantastic views from the trig point on the top. On a clear day you'll see for miles.

    I was very impressed - highbrow expect this to be so nice, being right next to a motorway. There is plenty of parking, with a small parking area at the entrance and the main parking area further down the turn off. There are no toilets though.

    There are clearly marked paths, some more "main" than others, or you could go off road and wander through the trees. Saw 4 red squirrels the first time I came...amazing! Beautiful in Autumn, so I'm looking forward to visiting in the Summer too.

    Sometimes it's confusing which way to go, as part markers don't have arrows, but it's not too far to walk back if you go in the wrong direction.

    Pretty good! 👏

    I feel compelled to write this review after reading the bad 1 star reviews of this Loch.

    Needing out the house after months of being cooped up we headed out with our wee cockapoo dog for the day. My partner had heard of loch glow from pals and living near by we went.

    The road down is not a tarmac road, it’s gravel and you do have to be careful … but this is sign posted as you turn off main road and speed limit is 10mph (it’s only 1 mile ish).
    I didn’t realise until we got there that it was a fishing loch and saw the sign in car park saying anglers parking only & members only on Wednesday’s. Being a Saturday we parked up and my partner went to the portacabin office to ask if we could park and take our dog for a walk. He came back and said the guy couldn’t have been nicer and told him “aye go for it and take your wee dog and misses for a wander round and next time bring your rod’s”.

    We had a nice walk round loch and meet a couple of fishermen who were not overly friendly but polite.
    As my partner is a keen fisherman we will be back with our rods and a wee day tent to sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of loch glow and hopefully catch a fish or 2!!

    I believe it all depends on your own attitude as to how you are treated by others.

    New Central Park, or just Central Park as it’s often known, confusingly shares a name with the home ground of Kelty’s neighbours Cowdenbeath. It’s become clear to me that the people of Fife have an unusual fixation with buses and Central Parks, which is offset slightly by their far more understandable fixation with Stephen’s Bakery.

    Residents Kelty Hearts have seen themselves make a quick rise through the Scottish leagues since the introduction of something resembling a proper pyramid, which makes the fact this Stadium is such a pain to get to all the more frustrating. We got a train to Cowdenbeath then a taxi the short journey between towns, though in true Fife fashion I’m sure it’s accessible via 9 buses? You just have to work out which combination.

    Within the town of Kelty itself location is fine, near the only local pub, New Central Park has an attendance of just over 2,000 spectators, with most of that standing, there are covers on the seated main stand, and 2 covered parts of terrace on the other side. You can stand behind the goals but these are exposed. Kelty have been pulling in at least 1,000 fans most games, though it will be interesting to see how they fare as the leagues get tougher.

    Facilities comprise of portacabins for toilets (neither the best nor the worst I’ve seen) and catering, which had pretty damn good steak pies to be honest. I only had that but they had a pretty standard selection at fair price points.

    Overall, New Central Park isn’t a bad stadium by any means, it’s actually a very typical Scottish lower league stadium. Does it’s job without too many frills. The only real let down is the transport links

    This landscape has been formed from the remains of a huge opencast site which contains 3 large spiral hills with large metal artefacts left on the site . Charles Jencks inspirational landscaping is reminiscent of the well known work at Crawick Multiverse near Sanqhuar . Unfortunately there was not enough money left to finish the site.
    There is great tourist potential here to develop a popular park There are paths leading from the east end of Loch Fitty and also from Kelty in the North.The hills have spiral paths round and the view is worth it from the top . There is also a small loch at the base of the hill .It took us an hour and a half to walk up and back down but we are not in the first flush of youth

    Whilst out for a drive yesterday, and not too far away from this location, we decided to pay a visit.
    It can be accessed from the back road out of Ballingry, but this is a narrow single track road for the most part. We actually drove past it on our first attempt to find it! If you would rather not travel such a distance on the single track road, it can be accessed from the B996, near Blairadam (running alongside the M90 Motorway). From the B996, turn off along the unclassified road in the direction of Benarty Hill and Ballingry. Paranwell Bridge is only about one-third of a mile along this road. After passing the Blairadam Shooting Range on your left, Parenwell Bridge is only a few yards further along, on the same side of the road, and protected by a tree! There is a small parking area directly opposite.
    I'm not really sure whether to call the structure a bridge, an arch, or a monument.
    As it stands today, fenced off in a section of a field, it literally is a bridge over nothing to nowhere! But by taking a closer look at the history it becomes clearer, as it was situated on what was the main route north from Edinburgh before road improvements in the late 1800's, plus it also 'improved the view' from nearby Blairadam House, home of the Adam Family a very notable dynasty of Scottish architects.
    The Earl of Rothes intended capturing the Queen (Mary Queen of Scots) at this point, however she was warned in advance and missed the trap.
    Built by Lord Chief Commissioner Adam to mark the site of Lord Rothes' attempt to seize Lord Darnley in 1567.
    There are inscriptions on the bridge but these are very worn now. However, plaques have been added so that the story can still be read.

    I passed this local church yesterday and was quite taken with the display of poppies flowing down the church . This local church is very active in the local community and is a Church of Scotland denomination

    This totem pole was carved by a team of Canadian totem pole carvers. I think it’s a welcome pole as the pole depicts a motherly figure for protection, an owl for wisdom and a cat I think to symbolize the connection between the two. The only downside of the sculpture is that the face of the owl has either been vandalised or rotted away. A very unusual thing to see in Scotland, but I wouldn’t go out of the way to see it unless passing through Kelty.
