East Lothian, North Berwick and Dunbar

East Lothian, North Berwick and Dunbar

Immediately adjacent to Edinburgh is East Lothian. Perhaps best known for its links golf courses, this is also a region with much to offer the walker. The coastline is perhaps the greatest attraction, with mile upon mile of glorious sandy beaches, dunes and nature reserves. The coastal planes are dominated by a number of individual, small but steep hills such as North Berwick Law and Traprain Law, which are superb viewpoints, whilst further inland are the more extensive, rolling moorlands of the Lammermuirs.

Not the least attractive aspect of East Lothian are the towns and villages. Gullane and Dirleton are both worth a visit, whilst amongst the towns North Berwick has the Scottish Seabird Centre as well as some fine buildings and many art galleries, and Dunbar boasts the childhood home of John Muir, the father of conservation.
