Gullane Bents

Gullane Bents is a glorious sandy beach from which there are extensive views of the Firth of Forth. It is a popular family beach ideal for sunbathing, walking, kite flying, picnics, windsurfing and canoeing. The sea buckthorn and the extensive back dune system provides a haven for small birds. A wheelchair-accessible path brings users to a picnic area that overlooks the bay.

Getting there

The beach is within walking distance of Gullane village, which has a number of coffee shops and restaurants. The beach is sign posted from the main street. There are regular bus services to the village.

A large (fee payable) car park is situated adjacent to the beach.
