Start by walking back into Gifford.
To Haddington through sun and showers, past the Chippendale International School of Furniture.
Haddington has 9000 inhabitants today, although during the Middle Ages it was the fourth largest settlement in Scotland.
From Haddington I pick up the old railway line to Longniddry. This line used to take horse manure from Edinburgh out to the East Lothian countryside - the 'dung-lye special'.
I was sort of expecting Longniddry to be a slightly grim seaside village but it's quite pleasant (in a retiree way).
I make my way along the "Scotland's Golf Coast".
In Prestonpans there is a sculpture by the artist Leslie Frank Chorley. I've never heard of this artist and can't find much online except for the satisfying fact that he lived for exactly the 20th century - born in 1900 and died in 2000.
Prestonpans is "Scotland's Mural Town" and I pass a couple of them on the way.
I arrive in the outskirts of Musselburgh and have a rest on a bench in a park called 'The Cast' looking out to Arthur's Seat and Edinburgh.
