Keil's Den is an area of ancient woodland (meaning continuously wooded for over 400 years) in a narrow valley situated about one kilometre north east of Lundin Links. It runs north to south for 1.3 kms and is only 0.5 kms wide at its widest point (see sketch below). The Keil Burn flows through Keil's Den, draining the area to the North and flowing into the Forth at Largo Harbour. The Den supports a variety of flora and fauna. Now managed by the Woodland Trust, the main tree types include ash, beech, sycamore, oak, elm and birch. From bluebells in the Spring, to beautiful autumn colours, there is always something of interest making this spot worth a visit all year round. The fact that this wooded glen has been around for centuries means that there is plenty of local history relating to the site - more of that to follow....
