Aberlady Bay

Main walk to the beach and back : 1 and half hours

The best time to take a relaxing walk around the bay is a dusk or dawn, where in addition to the birds, wild deer can be seen. Paths after the wooden bridge are clear but often muddy and take care with the fast moving tides. Please note that dogs aren’t allowed on the reserve between April and July and at all other times must be kept on the lead.

Aberlady Bay was designated as Britain’s first Local Nature Reserve in 1952 and is managed by East Lothian Council. The Reserve is also part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest, due to its botanical, ornithological and geomorphologic significance. The Reserve covers an area of 582 hectares (1,439 acres), of which two-thirds falls below the high-tide mark and consists of tidal sand, mud flats and pioneer salt marsh.

    We got Tasting Menu vouchers so we could treat the parents and what a fabulous Saturday night we had! Devil’s in the detail, and even the Prosecco was served with a perfect raspberry in each glass. Napery and drapery are quite formal but the atmosphere is relaxed and very friendly. The wine list is extensive, ranging from the affordable to the ridiculous – we plumped for a highly acceptable Fleurie (which was delicately poured into a decanter: lovely touch, looked wonderful in the twinkling … relaxed and very friendly
