The Links, Beacon, Beach, Burntisland
The Links, Beacon and beach form the town’s main recreation spaces.
The Links was granted by Royal Charter in 1541 to the Burgh of Burntisland by King James V of Scotland. Burntisland highland games are held on the third Monday in July, and are Scotland’s second oldest games dating back to 1652. A fairground is located on the links between May and August every year.
The main play area is situated at the eastern end of the Links. A water play feature is located here.
Across the railway is the beach and Beacon leisure centre. The Beacon Leisure Centre is open every day and has a swimming pool and gym. Outside the centre is a skatepark, multi-use games area and synthetic turf pitches.
The Lifeguards are present at the beach from the 24th June to the 28th August. The beach gained a Scotland’s beach award in 2016.
