Edinburgh to Dunbar

35 miles (57 km)

Travel through East Lothian along National Cycle Routes 1 and 76 and enjoy splendid views of Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth.
The route starts in Edinburgh, near the train station and heads east along National Cycle route 1 to Musselburgh, passing through the famous Holyrood park. This first section of the cycle ride has excellent views of King Arthurs Seat and Duddington Loch and includes a lovely traffic free section along the River Esk into Musselburgh.
At Musselburgh you join National Cycle route 76 which takes you along the Firth of Forth through Prestonpans and Port Seton, before heading inland towards Haddington and East Linton with views of the River Tyne. You finish with a pleasant off road stretch from East Linton to the coastal town of Dunbar.
