Day 171 : Dunbar – Coldingham

Today the weather was fantastic for this time of the year, it was warm enough for tea-shirts. Dunbar was an interesting town with a natural harbour protected by some outcrops of rock. Dunbar seems to be the midway point between Edinburgh and the border at Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Day 169 : Longniddry – North Berwick

I leave Longniddry and follow the coastline round to Aberlady Bay. From here I follow the Trail into the RSPB Nature Reserve. You are requested to keep to the paths so as not to disturb the wildlife. I eventually take to the beach which I walk along to Gullane Bay.

Day 168 : Leith – Longniddry

I start today at the Ocean Terminal in Leith, the home of the Royal Yacht Britannia.  I was surprised to see that the terminal was part of a big shopping complex. I nipped into the complex and found a viewing platform by a coffee shop where I could take some pictures.

Day 167 : South Queensferry – Leith

I have decided to do something which I did not originally plan to do. Because of a number of things that have happened during this year which meant me taking more time out than planned, and the daylight hours are getting shorter, I will skip round to Edinburgh to continue my walk down the east coast. But do not worry I will be back next year to complete the stretch from Ullapool to Edinburgh.
