From Prestonpans to Seton Sands…

A strange day today, the breeze had dropped some, it was warm and though it looked grey it was actually mostly sunny – very nice and pleasant for walking in. We parked up on the far side of Prestonpans and walked along the John Muir Way along the shore from Morrison’s Haven.

We wandered along the shore side of Prestonpans on an old concrete walkway (a bit worn and seaweed covered in places) with a mix of rocks and sandy patches.

Prestonpans main beach is a stony foreshore and at low tide a large area of rocky outcrops and rock pools.

A bit further along and we arrive at another mostly stony beach as we reach the combined villages of Cockenzie and Port Seton.

Cockenzie Harbour with lighter craft.

The original natural harbour of Cockenzie now a pretty little stony, very sheltered beach and at high tide probably a great place for a swim.

And Port Seton with it’s large commercial trawlers.

Beyond Port Seton we arrive at Seton Sands a long beach with gradually more and more sand in amongst the rocks.

Not the most picturesque walk we have made and the beaches are certainly not up to the beauty of East Aberlady and beyond! But an enjoyable 7.5 mile walk.

Two thoughts of the day:

I am feeling rather proud, as my son has just qualified as an Accountant!

Are we in for a lovely weekend?
