There are many other routes along the John Muir Way, part of the North Sea Trail .

The 70 km East Lothian coastline extends from the wonderful birding spot of Levenhall Links west of Aberlady to the spectacular Bass Rock and its unique gannet colony and Dunbar, birth place of that great conservationist John Muir often called the father of America’s National Park system. A series of sandy bays and small estuaries separated by rocky promontories, with low cliffs at the far eastern end, the East Lothian coast, with Ducks in the middle, is tracked by the John Muir Way, a footpath allowing easy access for most of its entire length. There is enough here for the casual and expert wildlife watcher alike.

The burger was outstanding, large and juicy and incredibly tasty. The fish was perhaps the best we’ve ever had. The chips, more like roast tatties, large crispy on the outside and fluffy n soft on the inside. Celeriac Soup and Fennel soup truly delicious.

The service was outstanding and each day had totally different staff as well. We had our wee dog wi… 5* treatment
