About the event

The Ecology Centre in collaboration with the Scottish Wildlife Trust plan to launch the South Fife Snorkel Trail, to add to the Scottish Wildlife Trust's existing snorkel trail network. This trail will feature five snorkel sites along the coastline from Burntisland to Kirkcaldy and will be suitable for both novices and advanced snorkelers. The creation of the South Fife Snorkel Trail intends to help make the ocean more accessible, thereby providing locals and visitors with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge, connection and appreciation of the diversity of life and underwater geology, found in the coastal waters of the Firth of Forth. 

Sites to be considered: 

  • Burntisland Beach 
  • Kinghorn Bay
  • Seafiled 
  • Long Craig 
  • Ravenscraig 

Alternatives if the above are not suitable: 

  • Aberdour, Silver Sands

The Ecology Centre is hosting a community consultation on the 2nd of March at the Ecology Centre. So we would be thrilled to invite interested local individuals, community groups and organisations to attend this event. Through this workshop you will be able to contribute to the development process for this trail. Your feedback is sought after, so please feel free to make suggestions on any part of the adgenda for that day. This will include:

• What snorkel sites to include

• Marine species known to be at these sites

• Benefits/opportunities seen in this resource

• Challenges/concerns that may exist

• Ways to support local people in using the snorkel trail as well as visitors

• Local groups or businesses that this snorkel trail may be of interest to

• Launch plan ideas and partners

This online workshop is freely open to everyone. We especially invite participation from local marine users (e.g. wild swimmers, divers, marine surveyors, eco-tourism businesses, etc.).

The Ecology Centre has a limited capacity, therefore we ask groups to rsvp their intent to attend this event, and that representatives from the intivited groups will be capped at two members to ensure all groups have the opportunity to attend. If representatives are unable to attend in person a live link will be accessible and on request the consultation document will be made accessible so community groups are able to submit their responses. 

Warm drinks will be supplied during the event.
