Improvement works at West Sands in St Andrews have begun this week in a bid to restore the dunes along the beach which were badly damaged by high tides and strong winds in recent years.

Following the stormy weather in March 2010 a large amount of sand in the dunes was lost and, while some parts have recovered over subsequent years, some have remained vulnerable to further erosion.

Gordon Moir, director of greenkeeping, St Andrews Links Trust told Fife Today: “The historic, recreational and economic value of the West Sands and surrounding area to St Andrews makes it vitally important they are protected.”
