This route follows the River Tyne as it meanders from Haddington to East Linton. On the route seven mills can be observed in various states, from fully operational to abandoned with some now converted to private dwellings. Reminants of the milling industry can be observed throughout, including various mill races and sluice gates. A short diversion to visit the ruins of Hailes Castle is also possible if time permits.
The route can be done in either direction with return to the starting point by bus, although travelling west to east is best as it follows the flow of the river and the prevailing wind.
Safety informationParts of the route can be prone to flooding after severe weather - check Floodline Scotland for any alerts.
