East Lothian | Cockburnspath | Beach | ★★★
Quickly reached from the A1 main road, Thorntonloch Beach has several strings to its proverbial bow besides easy access. On the south side, a mile of usually crowd-free sand: this part of East Lothian is relatively sparsely populated and there are plenty of other beaches nearby. On the north side, extensive (though muddy) rock pools good for spotting wildlife and wading birds at low tide. Oh, and we should probably mention the nuclear power station immediately to the northwest! Anyway, if you don't mind that, you'll have a blast...
📌 Thorntonloch Beach ★★★
Location: Minor road end off A1 3 miles north of Cockburnspath, G.R.: NT 752746 ///seasick.onions.gladiator
Anything else? It probably doesn't need to be said, but the beach is best at low tide, when the rock pools are accessible.
