This was a pleasant walk for a day where I had a little time to spare. I'd walked Largo Law a long time ago and had always wanted to do Berwick, but never gotten round to it. I was reminded about that when I had visited Dirleton and Tantallon Castles at the weekend and so came back as soon as possible.
The walk is pretty much as described in WH apart from one major problem. North Berwick Glen path is closed because of path maintenance, as I found out half way down. Thanks Council guys, you might have posted notes at the top of the walk. I cut over playing fields and rejoined the walk at the beach. The section before that has been pretty well cut up by cattle too and so pretty muddy and slippy. I washed my boots in the sea. It was still a good short walk to clear the cobwebs.
