About this walk

Forest/beach. From Forestry Commission: Tentsmuir is a magical combination of forest trails that dip and weave between tall trees and open sand dunes that change constantly with the wind and tides. The coast here is one of Scotland’s most dynamic landscapes: parts of the shoreline are growing out into the sea at a rate of five metres a year.

There’s rich wildlife, from coastal grassland dotted with wildflowers in spring and summer to great flocks of sea birds that come to feed on shellfish. Seals visit often: look out for them hauled out on the sandbanks, or bobbing in the water, watching you as you walk along the shore. The forest is home to red squirrels and roe deer.
