Tentsmuir Forest walk and picnic

http://www.tentsmuir.org/Tentsmuir_leaflet.pdf

A walk in Tentsmuir Forest, near Leuchars. I plan to arrive there at 11.30am, walk for a while, have a picnic lunch - you supply your own!! Then walk again. It is flat. Beautiful walks through the forest. The beach is stunning. Would be walking 6-10 miles altogether, though perfectly possible to do less, and don't need to walk fast! It would be best on a dry sunny day so if anyone knows when we are going to have one...

Happy to do it more than once or on a Saturday too.

    Lovely walk across the huge expanse of beach and through the forest. Great to meet some new people and dogs too! Thanks Janet for helping us to decide on which route to go - or else we would still be there trying to make a decision! Excellent company and lovely weather too!

    Sorry to hear you aren't well Bryce - thanks for letting us know you can't make it. I see numbers keep changing... I will check in here for any updates until 10.

    The weather looks to be staying dry. I would have liked some warm sunshine - maybe next time.

    The car park, picnic area and toilets are around the same place. There is a big covered circular information bit, with leaflets etc.
    Meet up there?

    Remember to bring a picnic and £2 per car to park.

  • Val

    For Jean. You emailed me but i dont know how to reply. Sorry i can't offer you a lift. My car is fully packed for a car boot, plus i live South Queensferry so i think you'd be quite a detour?

  • Sue M.

    If you find you can no longer come tomorrow would you please let me know on here and change your RSVP to NO. This way we won't be hanging around waiting for people who aren't going to turn up. Thanks.
    Weather looks set to be dry tomorrow - if not the warm summer's day I had hoped for.

    Sorry. Something has come up.

    June 24, 2013

  • Sue M.

    Let's get some discussion about starting time. Is 10.30 a bit early for most people? Is 11.30 better? Do people know how to get there? Drive to, and then through, Leuchars, it is well signposted. Meet at main car park / toilets / picnic area - the link above has map with these marked.
    Pay barrier, I think it is £2 to park.
    Bring food and drink with - no shops / cafe within the forest!!

  • Ross S.

    work permitting

    May 23, 2013

  • Sue M.

    The date is set! I will be going there more than once this summer, so if anyone can't make this date there will be another opportunity. If it's tipping down with rain, I won't go! It looks like we may end up walking in 2 groups - those who maybe want to cover 3-5 miles in the day and those who would be looking to do 6-10 in the day. We can all picnic together of course! How do people feel about this, and who would like to be responsible for the 'shorter walk group? Maps are available when we get there, and the link above gives you a map too.
    Really looking forward to this day out :-)
