Access to Morton Lochs at Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve has been closed to all visitors until further notice, following Storm Ali.
The gales last week devastated the car park, access road and the surrounding areas at the north Fife reserve.
Tom Cunningham, Scottish Natural Heritage reserve manager, said: “The area is very unsafe because of fallen trees and we’re asking everyone, whether on foot, bike, horseback or in a car to take heed of the signs that the road and paths are closed.
“Our contractors are working in the area with chainsaws, tractors and forest cranes to move heavy old tree trunks and brash to disposal sites.
“You can still access Tentsmuir Point from Tayport as well as the Forestry Commission car park at Kinshaldy.”
