Lauder to Cockburnspath

This section is again normally split into two days with an overnight stop at Longformacus. This gives a first stage of 25km and a final day of 28km. The first part of this section winds through the Lammermuir hills. All the large uplands are now behind us so this section is gently rolling hills compared to what has come before. Once past Longformacus the route  goes through arable farmland towards the coast where it follows the cliffs for a mile or so before heading into Cockburnspath and the end of the Way.
From Cockburnspath the John Muir Way can be followed for around 9 miles along the East Lothian coast  to Dunbar for anyone wanting to catch a train.
