Auldhame to Dunbar

It's almost the 2nd Saturday of the month again - and next weekend (Saturday 8th June), we're going over to East Lothian and walking from the village of Auldhame down to Dunbar ...

... details as follow below: 

- this month's walk will be from Auldhame to Dunbar, in East Lothian ...
- we'll meet in Dunbar, get a local bus up to Auldhame, then walk back!
- it's a coastal route, of some 10-miles, and the route should take us about 5-hours

- meet for 10am, on Saturday 8th June 2019
- meet in the Leisure Centre car park (no parking charge), which is off Victoria Street - see:

- there are though various options for travel to Dunbar:
- there's an 8.52am train from Haymarket (or 9.08am from Waverley) that arrives in Dunbar for 9.28am
- or the X7 Bus goes from Waterloo Place (in Edinburgh) at 8.41am and arrives in Dunbar for 9.43am - see:
- it's then just an 11-minute walk from the Rail Station (and/or Bus stops) to the Leisure Centre - see :
- or do just let me know if you do want a lift from Shandon, as there should be some car-spaces available?

- the local bus (more of which below!) up to Auldhame doesn't leave until circa 10.40am, so we may have a bit of time to call in to John Muir's Birthplace (see:, which opens at 10:00 --- free admission (donations welcome) ...
... or the nearby 'Graze coffee shop' - see:

- shortly after; we'll then catch the local 120 Bus, which leaves nearby, at circa 10.40am - cost should be £3, so do bring some change
- 120 Bus details are here:
- we'll disembark at Auldhame and then follow the coast (plenty of beautiful beaches!) back to Dunbar
- much of the potential route is described here: ... although we'll obviously be doing it from North to South, and starting further South in Auldhame :-)

As usual; do bring along some food/packed-lunch etc. --- but we can potentially also get some food/drink when we finish back in Dunbar :-)
