Musselburgh – Prestongrange - Musselburgh. (Approx. 5 miles)

2-3 Hours walking plus refreshment stop

This is a repeat of the walk of Wed. 9 April. If you missed it, or want to do it again come along.

Dogs Welcome, bring your owner along!

Meet-up point: Front of Brunton Theatre/Hall, High St. Musselburgh. The bus stop from town is next to the theatre (services to this stop from town: Lothian 26, 30, 44. First Bus 106, 113, 129). Ample street parking near Brunton Theatre.

We walk behind the theatre to the footbridge over the River Esk, turning left and following the river to its outflow at the Forth. We follow the footpath by the sea wall behind the racecourse and ash pits as far as Prestongrange Bowling Club at the start of Prestonpans. From there we turn back and walk the few hundred yards to the café at Prestongrange Museum (there is an outside seating area suitable if bringing a dog). Those wishing to end the walk here can take the service 26 bus back through Musselburgh, Portobello and into Edinburgh (bus stops at the museum). After refreshments at the museum, we continue walking through Levenhall Leisure Park and Musselburgh Racecourse back to the footbridge over the Esk and back to Brunton Theatre.

Boots advisable as most of the path has a loose stone surface with a few potholes.

    Sorry I could not reply yesterday as I am only on email at work. Decided to not take a chance with the transport incase of long delays. Hope to see everyone soon Pam

    Good fun and much better weather than expected. However, I got to Musselburgh in 20 mins and got home from Musselburgh in about 2 hours!! Next year, during the Edinburgh Marathon I'll be staying at home!!

    Hi Brian, sorry I've just checked the marathon restrictions, road closures etc and have decided it's going to be too difficult to come tomorrow - hope you enjoy your walk and look forward to a catch up with you another time soon.
