A long but mostly level walk on good surfaces
Enjoy a walk along the John Muir Way from Dunbar to East Linton, taking in some beautiful coastal and river scenery along the way.

As well as beautiful vistas we are likely to see kittiwakes, fulmars, gannets, shags, herons and much, much more.

The route is fairly level so suits average fitness, on a mixture of surfaces from tarmac to sand and mud.

The walk starts from the meeting place at Dunbar Leisure Pool – the grassy area in front of it with the picnic tables – and ends in the lovely, historic village of East Linton.

It will take about 3.5 hours with the finish around 1pm in East Linton, where there are plenty of pubs and cafes for a post-walk lunch.
