Dog Walk: Tentsmuir

 
One of our favourites!
 

 

“You can find pine-scented forest, windswept sands and a wonderful range of wildlife at Tentsmuir. The trails are ideal for walking, family cycling or horse riding. If you’re lucky you may see squirrels in the trees and seals basking on the sand.
 
Tentsmuir has a fascinating history too. On your visit you’ll be following the footsteps of Pictish cattle herders, kings hunting boar and bear, and soldiers building defences.
 

Be safe

 
It might look tempting, but swimming here is dangerous because of fast moving tides and shifting sand. If you are walking out on the sands, watch the sea and don’t let the rising tide cut you off.
 

Opening times

 
The car park opens at 8am daily, and can be very busy at popular times. From April to September it closes at 8.30pm and from October to March it closes at sunset. The gate is locked when the car park is closed and you will not be able to drive in or out. Please check the closing time on the board at the entrance.
 

Car park charges

 
The car park costs £2 per vehicle, payable at the automatic barrier. You’ll need to have the correct change.
 
Horseboxes are not allowed in the car park, however alternative parking is available at Kinshaldy Stables.
 

Food and drink

 
The Crepe Shack offers delicious authentic French crepes, tea, coffee and cold drinks. It’s onsite throughout the summer from 10am to 5pm every day.
 

Bring a barbecue

 
One stray spark from a fire could destroy the whole forest. To keep the trees – and visitors – safe, no fires are allowed in the forest or on the beach, but you’re welcome to bring a barbecue. Use the barbecues in the picnic area on one of the special barbecue plates, and please remember to take used barbecues home with you.
 

No alcohol

 
To help keep Tentsmuir welcoming and safe for everyone, a byelaw prohibits alcohol on the site.

“I never thought tribute bands were worth much consideration, but, the Sex Pistols Experience changed all that for me – absolutely blown away. See it to believe it. And deserving of the accolade of any true fans presence.
Take my advice. Dismiss at your own peril.” -Angel of Suburbia TV

Tae Sup wi’ a Fifer

“The ‘Tae Sup’ social began life in 2015, when James Yorkston was invited to curate some nights for the Adam Smith Theatre.
 
Pretty soon the evening developed a reputation for its quality, diverse line-ups and laid back, welcoming nature.
 
Our next night on the calendar keeps the quality high. Martin Simpson is universally acclaimed as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players, and a fine banjo-picker to boot.
 
Come along and bear witness to an artist at the very top of his game.
 
Whether interpreting materials from tradition or singing his own potent self-penned songs, Simpson is a remarkable storyteller: captivating and profoundly moving.
 
His own song writing produced the poignant ‘Never Any Good’, from Prodigal Son, 2007’s Folk Album of the Year.
 
“Martin Simpson has transcended borders and oceans to quietly become a superb storyteller and musician of great depth and unquestionable taste” – Stephen Fearing Martin’s in fine company for the night – joined by Belfast chamber pop maverick The Duke Special and acclaimed Co Mayo songwriter Seamus Fogarty, who is preparing to release his long awaited second album.”

 
Saturday June 10th – 8 PM – 10 PM
Adam Smith Theatre, Kirkcaldy
