We used to walk regularly at North Berwick, and usually along this western stretch of the beach that starts beyond the rocks at West Bay heading in the direction of Yellowcraig. And then, somewhere between 2020 and 2021, this beach started feeling too busy for us. Just too many people around after all the distanced days. We sought out the quieter walks along the stretch of coastline between Yellowcraig and Gullane, or at John Muir Country Park. So it’s been a while since we were last here.
On Wednesday, as we were in North Berwick anyway, we revisited this walk and these views that stretch from Bass Rock in the east, past Craigleith and The Lamb, towards Fidra in the distance looking west. The light was magical and it was so, so calm.
