On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Fisherrow to Cockenzie

The route starts at Fisherrow Harbour and then takes you over the River Esk, near its mouth where osytercatchers and other wader birds are attracted by the mussel beds and rich feeding in the estuary. You will pass Musselburgh Race Course and Musselburgh links golf course where it is suggested that Mary Queen of Scots enjoyed playing in 1567! The history lesson doesn’t stop there as after passing through West Pans, a coastal village which was once located on a small rocky peninsula, you will then cross the Industrial Heritage Museum which charts the history of local industries from the 12th century to present day – definitely the route for history buffs!
