Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve is a fantastic site for moths, including some of our rarest species. Come along to this event to see some of the moths we will catch in moth traps set at Tentsmuir the night before.

Date and time: Thursday 16th May, 9am - 10.45am
Location; we will have the moths on display at the Kinshaldy Beach Car Park. Access to this car park is through a barrier which requires £2 to open, so please bring change to pay for the barrier. More information on getting to Kinshaldy Beach Car Park can be found here.
Booking: booking is not essential and you can just drop in if you prefer. However if you'd like to book a space so we can send you reminders about the event please visit here.

Portland Moth is one of the threatened species foundat Tentsmuir. On the night of 15th May a small number of volunteers will be at Tentsmuir to look for larvae of this species so we can determine what they eat at this time of year. The search will likely start after 9pm and go on for a few hours. If this is of interest to you and you are able to get home safely at nighttime or camp at Tentsmuir then get in touch with Anthony at the address below.

This event is being faciltated by staff NatureScot who manage Tentsmuir NNR and Forestry and Land Scotland who manage part of the site and the car park. For queries contact Anthony on @email
