Burntisland Links


(The Links)

Burntisland Links (or simply The Links) is an area of coastal grassland overlooking the beach of Burntisland Bay in Fife, immediately to the east northeast of the town centre. The Links have been integral to recreation in the town since the area was granted by Royal Charter to the Burgh of Burntisland by King James V of Scotland in 1541. Burntisland Highland Games are held on the third Monday in July, and are said to be Scotland's second oldest games dating back to 1652. A fairground is located on the links between May and August every year and the Live on the Links music festival is centred on the bandstand and held annually in August. Other facilities include a pitch-and-putt course in the summer and a year-round play area for children.
