Canty Bay Beach

Canty Bay is a coastal hamlet with two beaches separated by a rocky headland. The western beach is uninhabited and accessible by two paths that descend the grass covered cliffs from the eastern end of the Glen golf course. The eastern beach is by the hamlet.

This former fishing hamlet has been immortalised by William McGonagall in his poem “Beautiful North Berwick and its surroundings”.
