Erbyn i mi gyrraedd y fan ble roedd y sgwarnog wedi oedi, a throi'r gongl unwaith yn rhagor, mae 'na fymryn o glawdd yn cyrraedd y gors, ac yno mewn lifrau porffor gogoneddus roedd tegeirian coch y gwanwyn (Orchis mascula; Early purple orchid).
The beach is backed by Marram grass and hosts an illustrious range of wildflowers, including grass of Parnassus and early purple orchid. At the end of the beach, after crossing Cocklemill Burn, a track continues by the caravan site at Ford Links, past Shell Bay and Kincraig Point and into Elie.
And the dunes burst into colour too during the summer: with the common centaury, evening primrose and sand crocus, as well as the dwarf pansy, shepherd's cress, early purple orchid and loose flowered orchid.
The abundant plant life includes agrimony, Dyer's greenweed, St John's wort, adder's-tongue fern, cowslip and common twayblade, as well as early purple orchid, common spotted orchid, bee orchid, and greater butterfly orchid, which occur in glades in the scrub.
