Forests & Woodlands

    A beachside pine forest, with miles of trails and lots of wartime heritage and wildlife to explore.

    Visit Tentsmuir and you are following in the footsteps of the first people who settled here 8,000 years ago. This mature pine forest is perfect for exploring by foot or bike. You can follow one of the waymarked trails or take the longer circular route. Tentsmuir is also home to a wide range of wonderful wildlife with everything from roe deer to red squirrels. Walk along the beach to Tentsmuir Point and you may see hundreds of seals basking on the sandbars.

    The western area of Tentsmuir, around Morton Lochs, is one of the oldest occupied sites in Scotland and boasts three small lochs and four wildlife hides.
