Preston Island is part of the Torry Bay Nature Resrve. There are various flat, wide and easily accessible paths along and through the reserve to suit everyone including wheelchair users. The ash lagoons are reclaimed land, created from the coal burning operations at Longannet power station. The ash is mixed with water and pumped along pipes to the artificial lagoons - now a haven for wildlife, thanks to extensive tree planting.

A coalmine established by Sir Robert Preston in the 19th Century never proved economic and was shut following an explosion.
