Walk of the week: Preston Mill & Smeaton Lake, East Lothian - The ...
3 Oct 2015 ... PRESTON Mill was the last working water mill in East Lothian and is still in great
nick under the stewardship of the National Trust for Scotland. The picturesque
setting, amid rich, rolling farmland, makes it a good place to simply look at. But
when combined with a walk up into the old Smeaton Estate there is ...
Walk of the week: Gosford Estate, East Lothian - The Scotsman
1 Sep 2013 ... This is the case at Gosford Estate in East Lothian where a walk around the
parkland is historically interesting and a real escape from the modern world. As
well as the trees and open spaces there are the 18th-century ponds and
associated small buildings to enjoy before the imposing grandeur of the Robert ...
Walk of the week: Dirleton, Yellowcraig and Gullane, East Lothian ...
22 Jul 2012 ... Field lanes bordered by banks of red poppies then, dunes and a golden beach
followed by rock pools and sandy bays, with waves lapping the shore. East
Lothian's coast is one of the most stunning in Britain yet overlooked. Take time to
explore the nooks and crannies along the way, pack a picnic or just ...
Walk of the week: Cockleroy, West Lothian - The Scotsman 9 Dec 2012 ... COCKLEROY – meaning the hat of the kings – is not a particularly big hill, in fact
it is below 1,000ft but to my young daughter it is “the mountain”. We can see the
hill from our house, and so for us it has become a regular activity to walk up
Cockleroy – me to look at views from Goat Fell, on Arran, to the ...
Walk of the week: St Baldred's Cradle, East Lothian - The Scotsman 29 Jan 2010 ... WITH rolling farmland, dense forest and then spectacular headland, all rounded
off with a brilliant expanse of golden sands, this walk has everything. It's also
ideal for winter, when the waves rolling in from the North Sea are at their most
spectacular.
Walk of the week: Binny Craig, West Lothian - The Scotsman 3 Apr 2011 ... Binny Craig in West Lothian is a prominent landmark – a sheer face of rock with a
trig point on top which gives excellent views across the Firth of Forth to the
Trossachs and Ochils as well as south east to the Pentland Hills.
Walk of the week: Hopetoun House, West Lothian - The Scotsman
19 Jul 2015 ... HOPETOUN House, standing above the Firth of Forth, is one of the grandest
stately homes in Scotland. Its grounds may be landscaped and created by man,
but they make for a perfect family walk during the summer holidays with loads of
space for children to safely run around and lots of pleasant spots for ...
Walk of the week: Seacliff, East Lothian - The Scotsman 20 Jun 2008 ... The beach itself is great for children who might simply want to play, but other
members of the family can enjoy a walk. As well as the Bass Rock, the other sight
that grabs attention is a cross on top of a stone beacon. This marks rocks known
as St Baldred's Boat, named after an eighth-century missionary ...
Walk of the Week: Fast Castle, East Lothian - The Scotsman 3 Jan 2010 ... IF YOU want drama, this walk has it in bucketloads. The route may be relatively
short but it is one of the most thrilling in the southern half of Scotland. A clifftop
path winds down to the ruins of a castle which has its origins in the Iron Age,
perched on a promontory jutting into the North Sea.
Walk of the week: Dunbar to Barns Ness, East Lothian - The Scotsman
9 Aug 2015 ... GOLF courses often used to be out of bounds for walkers. Nowadays, however,
there is a different spirit in the air and, thanks in part to the (relatively) new land
access legislation, the edges of the hallowed fairways can be passed by hikers.
This walk, along the wonderful East Lothian coast, passes the ...
Walk of the week: Beecraigs and Witchcraig, West Lothian - The ... 30 Dec 2008 ... FOR some, a good walk is all about getting as far away as possible from
everything, but exploring your own backyard can be enjoyable too. There's less
of a journey to get there, for a start, and it can introduce you to places you never
knew about right on your doorstep.

Walk of the week: Skaterraw Harbour and Barns Ness, East Lothian ... 24 Jul 2009 ... WITH the summer holidays in full flow, it is back to the beach today, and a rather
unusual location for a stroll along the coast. Going for a walk near to a nuclear
power station and a cement factory may seem like a strange idea, but this stretch
of East Lothian's coastline is actually very pleasant.
