  • Beautiful routes up well worn paths to the commonly spotted whale bones that are a prominent feature on the landscape. Easy to walk with small children and dogs and beautiful views over the east coast  more »
  • Had a great day taking my 9 year old grandson to climb the North Berwick Law. Really enjoyed the view from the top.
  • Perfectly easy and relaxing walk and beautiful views from the top and along the way. I met some horses on my way and took some pictures with a rock. Hope you enjoy the walk if you choose to try it!
