Season: winter

On arrival in the area by road from Leuchars, the beach itself is approached on foot via a pine forest, presenting three miles of uninterrupted sand to enjoy.  All manner of wildlife visit these shores, birds, marine life and shellfish.  Nearby Tentsmuir Point is one of Scotland’s seventy three Nature Reserves, in this case a place where seals haul themselves out of the sea.  Archaeological evidence from the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods suggests that this has always been a strategically significant area.
