Tentsmuir ice house
The ice house was built in the 19th century to store locally caught salmon. To keep the salmon fresh, ice was dragged here from ships in Tayport Harbour and placed within the thick dark walls. In winter, ice was also produced from the nearby ponds.

The ice house is home to a colony of Natterer bats. The constant temperature inside means that they are able to roost here all year round.
