Enjoy some largely flat coastal walking today as you continue east hugging the coastline to reach the small town of North Berwick.
Follow the coastal route (past where the recently demolished Cockenzie Power Station once stood) to arrive at Seton Sands to be greeted with endless beach views. From here, you may wish to stop at 400-year old Dirleton Castle; its towers date from 1240 and are among the oldest castle ruins in Scotland. Turn back to the coast at Yellowcraig, before reaching the seaside town of North Berwick. If you are interested in the local wildlife then the award-winning Scottish Seabird Centre is a must-see. You can also visit the Coastal Communities Museum to find out more about the folk that would have lived alongside John Muir.
