Herring Road and Clints Dod, near Stenton

An enjoyable circuit over the open heathery moors of the eastern Lammermuirs, giving fine views towards the North Sea. The Herring Road - and ancient route used by fishwives carrying creels of fish to market in Lauder and by the folk from the hills bringing herring back from Dunbar for use during the winter; it passes through an area occupied by a new windfarm.


Open moorland tracks and minor roads for much of the distance; some sections of the old routes have become much rougher underfoot.
