Dalbeath Marsh is a small, yet surprisingly diverse nature reserve, with a pond in the centre that supports a variety of wetland birds.
Dalbeath Marsh is a former quarry site just west of Cowdenbeath. There is a pleasant 0.75mile circular path running around the entire site. Dalbeath Marsh is a valuable resource for both local education and recreation with an interesting variety of wildlife.
As well as the open water, the site includes interesting wetland and grassland with small pockets of woodland. Rich in flora, there are a wide varerity of sedges, orchids, grasses, aquatic and heath plants which mean that the site has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific interest (SSSI).
The small site car park can be reached by turning north off the B917 when travelling north after leaving Hill of Beath.
