About KFO

Who are KFO?

Kingdom of Fife Orienteers (KFO) metamorphosed from West Fife Orienteers (WFO) in 2000, shortly after WFO's 21st birthday celebrations in 1999. As the new name suggests, we cover the whole of Fife, with members as far north as Gauldry, as far west as Saline and as far south as Dalgety Bay, and beyond.

WFO's first event was at Townhill woods, north of Dunfermline, in 1978. Despite being a small Club, we are regularly involved in the planning and organisation of local and major events.
