Come & join me, Toby & Ian for a relaxing circular stroll along our favourite beach.
We'll saunter along the sand for 3 miles, enjoying the stunning views. (Feel free to bring a football or a frisbee - or a squeaky ball for Toby!!).
When we reach the Harbour, we'll skip on up onto the streets of North Berwick til we reach "The Ship Inn". Inside, we can enjoy a hot drink or a cold pint (or a bowl of water). Or, some people may prefer to visit the gorgeous shops - or buy some fish & chips from the infamous "North Berwick Fry"! From here, we'll commence our return journey either back along the sand, or via North Berwick golf course.
Bring a packed lunch, cos we'll stop for a munch along the way! Sturdy boots / shoes for walking on the sand will be required - or wellies if you prefer. And bring waterproofs, just in case!!
We'll meet in Yellowcraigs car park. I'll be the one with a cute Lhasa Apso. We'll wait beside my car - a silver 2009 reg Peugeot 308, with yellow car magnets on either side.
If you need to contact me on the day, my mobile number is -[masked] 7141. Or my email address is: [masked]

Seen as there are more four-legged friends joining my walks, I thought it best to establish a few "dog rules". We need to be considerate of attending walkers, who are not dog owners / dog lovers. This will ensure we all enjoy the walks together...............
1) Please ensure that we pick up our dog's mess, whilst walking. (There seems to be an increased presence of dog wardens these days).
2) Dogs are to remain beside their owners / be on lead, when we sit down for a picnic. (Not everyone likes a strange dog staring at them - and their cheese sandwiches!).
3) Dogs can be off-lead on the beach. However, it is the responsibility of owners to ensure that dogs are put straight back on lead, if causing disruption to the group or other dogs, whilst we are walking. (We all want to have a relaxing, pleasant day).
4) Flexi leads are not permitted on the walks. (We don't want humans & dogs getting tangled up).
