Code of conduct for walkers

Users of Kingsbarns Beach and the adjacent coastal path are being asked to observe a 'code of conduct for walkers' when in the vicinity of the new golf course.

Code of conduct posters appeared on signs (at the beach car park, and at either end of the development) during the official opening week.

These posters were unceremoniously 'removed' by persons unknown very soon afterwards.

Fife Ranger Service should consider the fact that their signs have not been well received here. Fife council have actively promoted our beach and coastal path and people come here to relax, and to do their own thing. They do not take kindly to being told to muzzle their children for the sake of some precious recreational golfers. They do not wish to remain alert at all times to the state of play on the golf course. Dog owners will not be amused. Safety should not have been an issue on a new golf course built beside an established and well promoted beach - buffer zones should have been provided, even if it meant moving parts of the course inland - onto land as yet unused by the developer.

Here is the offending code of conduct for walkers (copied from one of the discarded posters)
