Hi Folks,

First post on the forum.

Im looking for any info on parking my van close to Belhaven bay, I hope to do a spot of fishing at the far end(Tyneninghame) and would like to park somewhere close.
I remember years ago that you could park at the john Muir car pk, and wondered if this is still the case.

Thanks

Scott

Hi
John Muir Park now has height barrier but you can park just before it if not too long an outfit--- bit of a walk back from tynningham with a big catch !!!!

When I was up there last August (in the car) I did a bit of scouting for wilding spots. Very slim pickings I am afraid, due to height barriers everywhere. I did not get around to where you want to be but it is probably the same story.

Best of luck anyway.

Hi Scott,

I used to do some wild fowling down in Tyningham Bay,
We would park in car park at the end of the road on the way down to the bay, but i am sure,it is still part of the estate but run by East Lothian council Ranger Service,
I am sure their is now restricting bars on all the car parking areas now,
When are you looking to go down, ? I am down in that area once a week and i could check it out and get back to you

Thanks for the reply`s folks.

Foxy I hope to get down next weekend to catch the tides, but I dont expect to sleepover then (still too cold for me) but I like this area and hope to fish it a lot in the better weather.

Maybe I should have said my van is a VW T4 without the raised roof, more of a surf bus type, so maybe it will get under the barriers.

Thanks

Scott

If your van is not too big, you could probably overnight in Cockenzie and Port Seton harbour car park. There is a good chippie and a pub or two. I did not see any no overnight signs.

There are some really good car parks on Gosford Bay but you would have to get under the height barriers.

Maingate the harbour is a good bet no probs, you get the odd boy racer
but plenty of space

If you leave the A199 at Tyninghame on the A198 and head towards North Berwick, you can take a right hand turn approx half a mile past the village of Tyninghame, which leads you to a parking area for the beach at Ravenheugh. No height barriers but maybe a bit tight for big motorhomes. It's marked on as a POI. I walk my dogs down there, it's a beautiful spot.

Can get my 7mtr coachbuilt down no problem, but if it's busy turning is difficult and parking sometimes near impossible.

Thanks for the info - I've added a note to the POI and flagged it as [ CR Tyninghame ] ...

(The square brackets on a POI location mean you should read the description because there are access restrictions or advice.)
