John Muir Country Park

4 miles (6 km)

Explore this beautiful section of the East Lothian coastline in this country park in Dunbar.
The lovely park has great views of Belhaven Bay and includes the John Muir Way long distance trail. You can pick up the trail to extend your walk and head through the countryside to East Linton, with views of the River Tyne on the way. In the park there's lovely beaches and a wide variety of plantlife and birdlife to look out for.
Just to the west of the site you can find miles of peaceful walking trails in Binning Wood. It's a good place for bird spotting and you may even see otters in the pond or the burn that runs through the woods.
You could also try our circular Dunbar Cliff Walk which passes close to the park and gives fine views of the ruined Dunbar Castle and Bass Rock.
