The wide sandy bay at Gullane is one of the most popular beaches in the east of Scotland, attracting locals, and visitors alike. It is popular for walkers, kite-surfers, horse riders and just about everyone else on a fine summer's day!
The dune grasslands support a wide variety of plant species such as viper's bugloss. Elsewhere, dense stands of sea buckthorn provide a habitat for many breeding birds, as well as shelter for foxes, small mammals and a small population of roe deer.
