Explore the south east of Scotland on foot this Easter

Here at Haven we love Easter.
Not just because it marks the start of our holiday season. But because it’s the perfect time to start spending more time outdoors.
I’m a keen walker and cyclist so I’m always looking to go out and about. And I’d always recommend asking our friendly staff for tips about the best walking routes near your park – they’ll always be happy to share their local knowledge.
Easter Sunday is on 20th April this year so if you’re having a weekend away, we’ll get things going by telling you about all the great walks in the south east of Scotland – but don’t forget, you’ll find other great outdoor activities in plenty of other regions too!

Coastal walks near Seton Sands Holiday Park, East Lothian

Just outside of the Scottish capital, Edinburgh, you’ll find Seton Sands Holiday Park. It’ll probably be too chilly to take a dip in the sea, but there are some lovely coastal walks to let you enjoy the beautiful Scottish coastline.
I’m a particular fan of the John Muir Way. This 73km footpath makes it possible to walk along the whole length of the East Lothian coast – all the way from Edinburgh to the Borders.
But don’t worry – you don’t have to walk the whole length (unless you’re up for a challenge, that is).
The path is broken down into shorter sections so that you can pick the one that’s best for you. Some sections even link to smaller paths so that you can walk a circular route.
Plus after all that walking your deserve to treat yourself in our newly refurbished Bar and restaurant?

After your long walk why not come and warm up in our new restaurant?

Hill walking in the Lammermuir Hills

Maybe you fancy more of a challenging walk this Easter holiday. So if you’re staying at Seton Sands, drive south to the Lammermuir Hills.
They’re just south of Edinburgh and form a natural border between Lothian and the Scottish Borders.
Walking here is particularly special because you get to enjoy Scotland’s natural beauty in a relatively undisturbed, natural environment.
And while it is a hilly area, you will be able to find some easier, flatter walks that are suitable for the kids too. For example, the walk from Westruther to Twin Law’s Twin Cairns is fairly gentle but still gives panoramic views in every direction.
But you know my favourite bit about getting out and about in the great outdoors this Easter? You can come back to your cosy caravan for a hearty family meal, all in the comfort of your very own home away from home.
