Glen McGill, of BRAWSCOTLAND photography, was one of the hundreds evacuated from his holiday home during the devastating incident.
He told the Scottish Sun that last night’s downpour and lightningstorm was unlike anything he’d ever seen before.
He said: “We had hours and hours of the most horrendous lightning and heavy rain from at least 8pm to 3am.

“I’ve never seen anything like it. No gaps between lightning – more like constant flickering like an electrical outage.”
The landslip blocked part of the local railway line and saw the A921 between Kinghorn and Burntisland shut.

Posting pics on Facebook in the early hours of this morning, Glen wrote: “Weve just been evacuated from our caravan due to danger of land slip.
“One along from us is already slipping. No sleep tonight as road out blocked both ways.”
He later added: “All caravans now being evacuated at Pettycur.
Weather chaos hits Scotland
THUNDERSTORMS and flash flooding have caused chaos across Scotland today after a MONTH’S worth of rain fell overnight. Here’s the latest weather news:
“Main road blocked to either side with landslips though Burntisland side might be passable for emergency vehicles.
“A lot of mud and a few vans where they shouldnt be. Just hope the ground isnt any more unstable.”
His BRAWSCOTLAND colleague Mario Moens wrote: “Multiple caravans started sliding down the hills due to the extremely heavy and long lasting downpours.

The caravans at Pettycur are on a slope
“Two mudslides just outside the park blocked the road in both directions, so we cant get out.
“Weve been evacuated from our caravans (500+ caravans) as more caravans are prone for sliding down.
“Ours too, as the fireman warned us that the ground underneath our caravan looked very unstable and just two caravans next to us already started shifting down the road.
“Weve heard some people were stuck in their caravans but we dont know for sure. Operation is still in full progress.”
It is understood that no one was injured during the mudslide and evacuation.
All the holidaymakers removed from their mobile homes were housed in the park’s Bay Hotel for the night.
A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: “Adverse weather conditions in the area of Pettycur Bay Caravan Park, Kinghorn, has caused a landslide.
“Emergency services were called to this location shortly after 11.35pm last night.
“A landslide had blocked part of the railway line in this area and has also caused the closure of A921 between Kinghorn and Burntisland.
“A number of properties on site have been evacuated as a safety precaution whilst emergency services can survey the damage in the area.
“No one has been injured during this incident.
“Police are urging motorists to use an alternative route whilst emergency services work to re-open the road.”
A spokesperson for Pettycur Bay said: We can confirm that as a result of the weather last night all customers in the holiday homes at Pettycur Bay were evacuated into our 4 star Bay Hotel where they safely spent the night, and where they remain this morning.
“No one was hurt on site. An engineer is on site now reporting on the slip and we are in the hands of the police as to when we can start clearance work.
