Quiet at this time of year. Long walks over the sand to the sea edge with very few people about. Good view of the hills.

Easy parking, cold morning walk but I can imagine it is perfect also on a summers day. Clean and accessible so ideal for families

I used to go here as a child and remember it being so much bigger but Gullane is more of a red-sandy bay that is great for a wee walk and even a picnic. These days though, I find there are so many dogs that...More

Gullane Beach is extremely clean, either that they have had people taking away all the rubbish that blows in. Went for a long walk (2 hours) and only saw one plastic bottle. I love this place. Wide open beaches and beautiful sand dunes. Great place...More

Love the beaches. Clean and fresh. Fantastic bird life. Wonderful walk near by at Aberlady Bay. A special corner of Scotland. Peaceful and pleasant and near enough to Edinburgh.

Beautiful beach, forestry and open landscape, great for birdwatchers, dog walkers and nature lovers in general. Lots happening to keep the children involved, trees to climb and rock-pools to explore. Easy access from the carparks.

The toilets are on the left hand side of the car park. 2 min walk from the beach. Very clean, with toilet paper etc. The car park cost £2 per day which I think pays off thinking about the recycling bins, clean toilets etc.
