Pathhead Sands Re-Opens to Vehicles

Thursday, December 3, 2015
We are delighted that Pathhead Sands, Kirkcaldy has re-opened to vehicles after an extensive works programme involving the reinstaement of eroded dunes, improved car parking and the implementation of landscaped areas and green spaces.

Councillors and representatives from the Fife Coast and Countryside Trust (FCCT) came together today to celebrate.

A popular area frequented by walkers, beachgoers and the general public, the car park has been rebuilt and landscaped, providing improved facilities at the site.  The team from FCCT along with contractors from the Cook Group, have also erected special fencing to allow dunes, a natural coastal defence, to regenerate and establish, as well as planting native grasses to help stabilise dunes and protect the coastline.

Alongside these improvement works the site drainage has also been enhanced, and new picnic areas and boardwalks installed to maximise comfort and enjoyment along the beach. The next phase of the works will be to re-route the Fife Coastal Path through the site.

As a result of funding secured by FCCT from Fife Council and the Coastal Communities Fund the work began in early September, with the aim of ensuring visitors have the highest quality experience at Pathhead Sands.

Amanda McFarlane, Chief Executive, FCCT said: “It is fantastic to see the hard work undertaken over the past few months result in such a vastly improved public space. With the help of Fife Council and the Coastal Communities Fund, we have been able to revitalise Pathhead Sands, and hope to encourage the local community and those from further afield to visit the area and enjoy the upgraded facilities.”

The Coastal Communities Fund is funded by the Government with income from the Crown Estate’s marine assets. It is delivered by the Big Lottery Fund on behalf of UK Government and the Devolved Administrations in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
