Walk: St Baldred’s Cradle, East Lothian
8th September 2020
THE ROCKS: This walk gives a good introduction to the volcanoes of East Lothian and the rocks that were here before the volcanic activity. We get a close-up look at one of these volcanoes, including a beautiful intrusion of basalt and some volcanic ash, and a sense of how the variety of rocks shapes the coastline of East Lothian.
THE WALK: From Tyninghame Links we will take a short circular walk around the headland of St Baldred’s Cradle. Walking on a variety of paths and rocky beaches. This is classified as a Moderate Walk, not always on paths, it may be rough or slippery underfoot at times. It may be wet, windy or cold. Come equipped with strong footwear and waterproof clothing.
