Coastal Walk – Aberlady to North Berwick (Scotland)

A few weeks ago, we went on a walk from Aberlady to North Berwick. We chose the coastal path which was about 10 miles in total and despite the overcast conditions, it was an amazing experience and we saw quite a few interesting things on the way.

Starting from Aberlady, the walk to the beach begins with a barren expanse of land dotted with a few trees.

Once we got to the beach, we found what is quite possibly the smallest “Loch” in Scotland (or maybe it was just a puddle).

The uninhabited island of Fidra looms quietly along the way, home to numerous sea birds and a lighthouse.

The walk is quite nice for other activities.

Finally, at North Berwick we got  some amazing views of Bass Rock (the Scottish Alcatraz) at sunset.

One can walk beyond North Berwick along the coast towards Tantallon Castle. By then, we were all tired and hungry so we all headed towards the nearest restaurant.

It may also feel busy and boxed in.

Some call it a big city.

Others find it small.

Either way, there’s always a place to rest and relax.
