Join us for another fantastic day out with family, friends and loved ones. Whether you are walking to celebrate and remember those no longer with us, or just looking for a great day out enjoying the coastline, our 13.5 mile and 5.5 mile routes offer something for everyone to enjoy.
Come and join us on our first ever East Lothian A Walk to Remember. This family-friendly event offers two routes, the Big Yin at a slightly more challenging 13.5 miles and the Wee Yin at 7.5 miles.
The Big Yin starts at Portobello Community Centre before heading along the front past Fisherrow Harbour and along Musselburgh Promenade. The route then crosses the River Esk and goes around Musselburgh Lagoons, hugging the coastline to Prestonpans. Once through Prestonpans, the route re-joins the coastal path and heads around the site of the old Cockenzie Power Station before coming into Cockenzie itself and going through the beautiful gardens of Cockenzie House.
The Wee Yin starts at Cockenzie House and joins participants from the big walk. We all then head out of Cockenzie and Port Seton, once again hugging the coastline as it winds through Seton Sands and Longniddry Bents. The route passes in front of Gosforth House before turning inland for the final stretch along woodland paths to Aberlady.
Along the route of the Wee Yin there will be fun activities for children (and any young at heart adults!) including a nature quest, face painting, a selfie frame so you can pose for pics, and at the end you will be rewarded with refreshments, ice cream, cakes as well as goodie bags for children in addition to a t-shirt and medal.
