Bikepacking Scotland is promoting a cycling route from North Berwick to Dunbar (or vice versa), with both ends of the route being accessible by train. This makes it perfect as a day out for experienced cyclists, or an overnight trip for beginners and families.
The Go East Lothian Trail features quiet roads, gravel tracks, singletrack, cycle paths. The route incorporates sections of the well-known John Muir Way and offers plenty of opportunities to stop and explore, from the stunning beaches at Seacliff, Tyninghame, Belhaven and Yellowcraig to John Muir’s birthplace, Archerfield Walled Garden, Smeaton Nursery, East Links Family Park, the Scottish Seabird Centre and the magnificent Preston Mill. The route also includes some of the great restaurants, cafes and shops East Lothian has to offer.
Scotrail operates frequent train services between Edinburgh and North Berwick, and trains also regularly stop in Dunbar on the East Coast Line between Edinburgh and London.
