Four hundred metres from the café Tentsmuir forest begins. Tentsmuir houses an amazing combination of forest trails that wind between tall pines and open sand dunes nearer to the beach.
The area's rich in wildlife, from wildflowers to roe deer and red squirrels, and also has an interesting history. The area was first used by Pictish cattle herders and kings hunting boar. More recently Polish forces based in Scotland during World War 2 constructed defences, some of which still remain today.
The flat sandy beach would have made a perfect landing spot for the German army and concrete anti-tank blocks, observation towers and pillboxes were built between Leuchars airfield and Lundin Bridge. On the beach itself long wooden poles were erected to defend against gliders and some of these can still be seen at low tide.
The Polish also built a camp in the forest, which was manned after the defences were finished, and this gave its name to one of the largest tracks in the middle of Tentsmuir - Polish Camp Road.
Bicycle rental costs only £10 for the day and there are miles of Forestry Commission tracks that can be used in Tentsmuir forest, which starts only 400 metres from the Rhynd. We also supply baskets and a wide range of picnics to put in them.
