GCT8PP East Lothian Woodland Walks 2: Binning Wood (Multi-cache) in Southern Scotland, United Kingdom created by Jack AubreyBinning Wood lies to the west of the A198 which runs between North Berwick and the A1. If you are approaching along the A1 from the west it is worth taking the A199 and then the B1407 to travel through East Linton and Tyninghame Village. Both are very attractive, with many of the typical features of East Lothian habitations. As one 19th century source has it: “East Lothian is far before most of Scotland in the neatness of its peasant homes”. Is it the Anglo-Saxon influence that has left streets that bend quirkily and houses that group cosily in ways different from most Scottish towns?
The John Muir Way is a continuous coastal path named in honour of the Scottish conservationist John Muir, who was born in Dunbar in the 19th Century. This section of the walk begins at the fashionable holiday resort of North Berwick before heading across farmland to skirt the vast saltmarshes of the River Tyne estuary before entering Dunbar via a dramatic clifftop footpath.

This 100 k or 62½ mile walk links the two religious sites in the Border area which are connected with St Cuthbert - Melrose Abbey and Lindisfarne or Holy Island. In the one, he began his life of religious devotion and, in the other, his life came to an end after long years of service to his God and to his fellow man. This site is intended to give an insight into the places through which the route passes, linking interesting information not normally contained in the guide books, adding scenic views where appropriate and to give pleasure to those who can never share the pleasure of actually being here in the Scottish Borders, whilst encouraging those who can come, to do so. A good map and a guide book, sensible clothing and footwear, and forward planning are essential if you are going to do the real thing; a comfortable chair, and perhaps a refreshment, is enough, if your walk is virtual.
Introduction This walk of just under 6 miles boasts tremendous views of the Northumberland Countryside for its entire length. It also takes in a site of historical importance - St. Cuthbert's Cave. The walk is mostly on tracks except for the section that follows St. Cuthbert's Way which crosses open moorland.

Harthope Valley Dipper This is a pretty valley, particularly in autumn when bracken, the dominant vegetation turns russet and gold. The valley has always attracted walkers as visitors, most notably the eminent eighteenth Century writers Sir Walter Scott and Daniel Defoe. The burn that runs along the bottom of the valley is fringed with alder woodland with wide grassy areas alongside, making it an ideal place on your walk for a picnic spot. If you like bird watching , then this valley provides suitable habitat to spy common sandpiper, wheatear, whinchat and dipper amongst others.
Broadstruther via Carey Burn. Introduction We think this is one of the finest walks in the Cheviot Hills, with a wide variation in scenery and fantastic views on a clear day. Outstanding in the winter after snow or a very hard frost.
This well signposted walk explores Dunglass Wood on the Hirsel estate before passing near the Hirsel Lake - home to swans, ducks, geese and many other types of birdlife - on the return. The walk passes the front of The Hirsel itself - a magnificent country house - and you may see the Estates herd of Douglas pedigree Highland Cattle. There is a Museum and Tearoom along the way and there are public toilets in the car park. Terrain Woodland paths and tracks and some tarmaced road. Some of the ground can be quite muddy in wet weather.
