A wander through Archerfield’s Estate and Dirleton…..

A bit of a showery start to the day, but that soon passed through, leaving us with a greyish day. A break away from the beach today we decided to take a walk along the John Muir Way from site. As a slight detour we wandered around the exclusive Archersfield Estate with some pretty huge houses but somehow feeling a little soulless – somehow a sign saying ‘Slow children playing’ didn’t seem very likely !

Next stop on our little meander was the Walled Garden – nice dog friendly cafe and artisan shop – oh yes and Walked Garden.

We then walked into Dirleton a very pretty old village centred around the castle (hidden behind trees but the wall looked very nice!).

A stolen glimpse through the gate at the gardens beyond.

And a large village green, edged with pretty flower endorsed cottages.

A rather imposing Doocot or Pidgeon House stands within the castle grounds.

And now the sun is out, it is time for us to wander back to site. A very pleasant 6.5 mile stroll.
