Musselburgh Grammar S3 Geography trip

Musselburgh Grammar S3 Geography had a great day out exploring rivers and coastlines in East Lothian.

The day started out with a waterfall session on Billsdean Creek followed by a walk downstream to explore the shore – fossilised trees were spotted as were textbook natural arches.

Natural arch – an opportunity for some field sketches

Rather than brave the crossing of the A1, a shortcut under the road was taken!

Moving on to Hedderwick Burn, lunch was taken in the tipi tent and some after lunch slacklining before moving on to study the meanders at in the lower course of the river.

A great chance to see at first hand some of the features the class have been studying in class – and the sun shone!
