Burn and Bridge, Maspin Glen, Falkland, Fife

Son of the Rock Acres backs on to a former estate whose ‘big house’ has been turned into a hotel. There are extensive woodland walks round the place even though most of it has long since been converted into a golf course. A burn, the Back Burn, flows through it and on through the town of Markinch before eventually joining the river Leven.

I’ve just realised I’ve not really posted any pictures from the estate mainly because the good lady tends to use them.

Anyway, not far away – about three miles – at the edge of the village of Falkland, lies another estate through which runs another burn, which possibly itself feeds into the Back Burn. A signpost at the bottom of the path points to Maspin Glen.

This is that burn:-

And this is a bridge over it carrying one of the estate’s paths:-
