Aberlady Bay Nature Reserve

The Aberlady Bay Nature Reserve is also part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest, due to its botanical, ornithological and geomorphologic significance. The Reserve covers an area of 582 hectares (1,439 acres), of which two-thirds falls below the high-tide mark and consists of tidal sand, mud flats and pioneer salt marsh.

The aim of the Reserve is to conserve the habitats, flora and fauna found within the area and the resultant landscape character.

The only facilities in the reserve are some rather basic toilets by the car park. Please note that dogs are not permitted on the Reserve April-July inclusive, and that they must be kept on a lead at all times during the rest of the year.
