With its beautiful wide,shallow bay and its famous wooden footbridge, Aberlady is much loved by photographers and birdwatchers. It lies on the East Lothian coast where the Pfeffer Burn flows into the Firth of Forth and, in 1633, was decreed the port for the County town of Haddington. Over the centuries, its sandy bay provided an active harbour for trading vessels as well as for smugglers, and though the wrecks of two midget submarines may be seen at low tide, now birds, not boats, throng the water. Covering 1,439 acres of mud flats, tidal sand and salt marsh; with rare flora and fauna; the Nature Reserve attracts nationally significant populations of overwintering waders, ducks and geese, including over 15,000 Pink-footed geese. Fortunate twitchers have also had sightings of the rarest birds on Aberlady Bay. Abundant as the geese are the golfers. King James V visited Aberlady for archery and golfing and play continues today at Luffness New, Kilspindie and Craigielaw locally and world famous championship courses nearby. Courses and club houses provide magnificent views of the bay’s wildlife and the Firth of Forth. It is here where author, Nigel Tranter, wrote many of his historical novels on his daily walks over the "Footbridge to Enchantment”.
