The walk follows the Promenade to the mouth of the Esk. Then it either takes a loop around the lagoons, now a nature reserve, and/or continues upstream on the side of the Esk. It crosses the Esk using the old Roman bridge and cmeanders on upstream to a pedestrian bridge across the Esk near Monktonhall Golf Club.
The walk follows the route of the National Cycle Route 1 to Musselburgh Station and then continues on pathways next to the railway line before div erting through Newhailes Industrial Estate to reach Newhailes House. The walk goes through the grounds of Newhailes House before briefly joining the Brunstane burn walkway. A short beach walk brings you back to Fisherrow Harbour
Route could easily be shortened by missing out the loop around the lagoons.
