Aberlady Bay

Aberlady Bay was the first Local Nature Reserve established in 1952.  The area within the Reserve is extensive with beautiful walks beginning with crossing the famous "footbridge to enchantment" by Scottish Author Nigel Tranter.  

If you arrive at low tide, you will see the remains of two midget submarines lying in the sand, though be careful as Aberlady Bay has a reputation for fast moving income tides!

Visitors are asked to keep to the good quality paths that cross the reserve.  The reserve is not suitable for dog walkers due to potential disturbing of birds and other wildlife.
