Burntisland’s attractive harbour is used for a variety of commercial and leisure purposes. This picture shows one of Fife’s most famous merchant ships, The Kingdom of Fife, against the backdrop of the BSC Clubhouse.
The Firth of Forth is rich in wildlife of many kinds. Sightings of seals are almost guaranteed occurrences and the waters and skies abound also with birds such as puffins, guillemots, eider duck and gannets.
Burntisland Sailing Club is now more than 60 years old and is located in the ancient town of Burntisland, on the Firth of Forth in Scotland.
The club has about 25 moorings accessible at all states of the tide, a well equipped clubhouse and compound for winter storage.
Burntisland is only six miles from Edinburgh – as the crow flies. Situated on the opposite shore of the Firth of Forth, the historic small town of Burntisland, with its sandy beach and 15th century castle, is on the south coast of the Kingdom of Fife. Dundee and St Andrews are 35 and 30 miles away respectively.
