Tough outer clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty / scratched and strong footwear will be needed to take part.

Bring your lunch each day, teas and coffees will be provided.

The entrance to Pittarthie lies south of St Andrews, on a sharp bend on the B940, which runs between the A915 St Andrews to Largo and the B9131 St Andrews to Crail
