A short circular route centred around Dunbar. Route goes out of Dunbar and follows National cycle route 76.
Dunbar, seaside town located furthest west in the county, home to John Muir. Founder of the National Parks movement, you can visit his birthplace in the High Street in Dunbar – free entry. Lots of shops and cafes down the main High Street and lovely historic harbour with the ruins of Dunbar Castle.
Go south out of Dunbar on the A1087 following cycle route 76. Go past quarry and towards campsite and lighthouse. It is possible to walk further along past the lighthouse – along last stretch of John Muir Way but not really suitable for bikes. Return back the way you came, however at the corner of Broxmouth park turn left under railway and pick up the track that runs alongside the A1 road, Asda and new housing development.
This eventually links to a road which runs down into West Barns. From here turn left onto A199 and then right signposted up narrow road towards East Links Family Park (admission charge) and John Muir Country Park – access to Belhaven beach. Return to Dunbar via West Barns and NCN 76.
