Gullane & East Lothian Beaches
There are many fabulous beaches along our coastline. Why not do the two hour walk following the coastal path starting at the Aberlady bird sanctuary ending in North Berwick. Admire the amazing scenery as the path takes you through Muirfield and Yellowcraigs with stunning views of The Lamb, Fidra with her lighthouse, and The Bass Rock as you come into North Berwick. If you still have energy you could climb to the top of North Berwick Law and see the whale’s jaw bone and the Iron Age Fort.
Gullane Bay is a magical place, away from shops and cafes – it is nature at its very best. Even if you have been before, it is always worth another visit as the landscape regularly changes. You can walk on the beach, play in the rock pools, go for a run with the dog, do fitness bootcamps, gallop along it on horseback or hide away in the dunes. The beach is expansive so don’t worry there is room for all!
You can walk along the coast from Gullane beach to North Berwick beach. Whereas Gullane’s beach is unspoilt and natural, North Berwick’s is in the heart of the town with houses and shops overlooking it. It has a buzzing atmosphere with the Seabird Centre, sailing school and a small harbour. Why not get some fresh lobster or good old fashioned fish and chips and sit on the wall and watch the world go by?
Just along from North Berwick is the hidden Seacliff Beach. It is nothing short of charming (you’ll need £3 to operate the access gate). This is a great beach to ride along and has a secret harbour and a magnificent view of Tantallon castle.
