For this section the route takes you along grass tracks, gravel paths and quiet roads. There are some steps and inclines, which are steepest near Dunbar in the vicinity of the cliff-tops. Berwick Law is a steep climb but this is an optional highlight. There are toilets in John Muir Country Park, East Linton and Dunbar itself.
The cycling braid has a short section of 1.4Km across fields between Blackdyke and Whitekirk. Known as ‘Becky’s Strip’, this hilly path is apt to be muddy during and after wet weather, with poor traction especially for road tyres. Expect to dismount and push. It can be avoided by using local roads.
Space for bicycles on trains from Dunbar may be limited so we advise you book spaces in advance.
