A Walk to Remember East Lothian

About A Walk to Remember East Lothian

Come and join us for A Walk to Remember in East Lothian. Taking place on Saturday 22 June, this family-friendly event offers two routes, the Big Yin at a slightly more challenging 13.5 miles and the Wee Yin at 5.5 miles.

The Big Yin starts at Portobello Community Centre at 9am before heading along the front passed Fisherrow Harbour and along Musselburgh Promenade. The route then crosses the River Esk and goes around Musselburgh Lagoons, hugging the coastline to Prestonpans. Once through Prestonpans, the route re-joins the coastal path and heads around the site of the old Cockenzie Power Station before coming into Cockenzie itself and going through the beautiful gardens of Cockenzie House.

The Wee Yin starts at Cockenzie House at 10:30am and joins participants from the big walk. We all then head out of Cockenzie and Port Seton, once again hugging the coastline as it winds through Seton Sands and Longniddry Bents. The route passes in front of Gosforth House before turning inland for the final stretch along woodland paths to Aberlady.

Along the route of the Wee Yin there will be fun activities for children (and any young at heart adults!) including a nature quest, face painting, a selfie frame so you can pose for pics, and at the end you will be rewarded with refreshments, ice cream, cakes as well as goodie bags for children in addition to a t-shirt and medal. Dogs welcome too!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for A Walk to Remember East Lothian are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
