Overview

'Dunbar is the perfect location for walkers of all ages and skills, offering a great variety of landscapes for walking, with the Lammermuir Hills, a coast of beaches and cliffs and an expanse of arable farmland in between. Many of the paths go to, or pass vantage points offering fantastic views of the surrounding rolling landscape. Amongst the features are many hidden gems - river valleys, woodland, secret bays and historic sites.'

Overview

'Used in the 18th and 19th centuries when the herring industry was strong.  It was used by people bringing home a stock of salted herring for winter use and also by fishwives carrying huge creels of herring from Dunbar to the markets in Lauder ... Gradually the speed and ease of the railway lines left little need for people to carry huge weights of fish over this high pass and it fell out of use.  It is probably a long time since a herring has passed by this way. Another historic route similarly used for the trade in fish is the Buckie Fishwives Path, Moray.'

The name (literally "Lamb’s Moor") gives a clue to their character as there are few distinctive peaks; most summits are between 450m and 535m (Meikle Says Law) and many are without cairns or trig points ...'
