Lime-rich dune grassland is an increasingly rare habitat on the east of Scotland. Such conditions make Dumbarnie Links an important habitat for rare plants and invertebrates. Nearly 2,000 species, including 1,200 insects and a wide variety of shore and sea birds, have been recorded here.
The Fife Coastal Path passes through the reserve.
For more local reserve information, visit the Fife Members' Centre website.
From Leven, take the A915 east along the coast to Lower Largo. There is a car park at the east end of Lower Largo.
From the car park, follow the Fife Coastal Path east along the edge of Largo Bay for about a mile until you reach the reserve.
Dogs must be kept under close control at all times.
