In these weeks when we’re spending time
at home and keeping our walks local, the
places that were once so familiar are
now so longed for. This story rewinds to
one of those places: Gullane Point, and
a walk I’ve shared here a few times
already. This walk was on the last day
of February, a brilliantly blue-skied
Saturday when we drove down the coast,
grateful for sunshine after what had
been a very rainy month. We couldn’t
have imagined that this would be our
last walk here in a while.

The light was shifting constantly.
One of the pleasures of this walk for
me was watching the clouds as they
lined up dramatically over the Forth.
The light was so strong and the blue
was so blue, it almost didn’t look
real when I scrolled back through the
photos. And this blue felt even more
striking at the end of February, as
if signalling the spring days ahead.

You follow the clifftop path to this
point, which is easily missed as this
tiny path leads through the gorse,
between the WW2 sea defences. Even
looking at that arrow, you might be
thinking, ‘Is this really the way to the
beach…?’ But it is, and in just a few
metres the view opens up before you.

The rest of this walk depends on
the tide. We thought we’d timed
this well to walk back along the
beach to Gullane, but the tide was
already further in and we had to
walk back over rocks - which is
fine, but a little trickier when
doing so in places with a wee hound
tucked under one arm.
