Long Description:

The Fife Coastal Path travels along the entire peninsula of the Kingdom of Fife in eastern Scotland, starting from Kincardine in the south to Newburgh in the north. On reaching St Andrews from the south, the path passes the East Sands where this sign is situated. It reads as follows:

'East Sands is one of the best loved and most popular beaches in Fife. The beach is part of the 'Sands of St Andrews' and is Fife's premier surfing beach. The East Sands Bay is home to the harbour, the sailing club and the Scottish Oceans Institute, so it can be a busy scene.

The bay is overlooked by the haunting remains of St Andrews Cathedral and the sandstone cliffs of the East Neuk stretch off towards Fife Ness. The bay is a great place to spot wildlife. In winter watch the long-tailed duck, eider and sloter; in summer, the gannets, fulmars and terns. Harbour seals are here all year round. It's a great spot!.'

Apart from the map, the sign also gives information on the coastal path and local accommodation.
