Burntisland Bay

A broad sandy bay on the northern shore of the Firth of Forth, Burntisland Bay extends for 1½ miles (2.5 km) between Burntisland and Pettycur in Fife. The Black Rocks lie on the seaward side of the bay. A network of wooden stakes across the beach represent a defence against invasion, preventing German aircraft or gliders from landing during World War II.
