Last Friday saw Dunbar Grammar School S4s getting up close (and wet) visiting a couple of East Lothian’s best physical geography gems. Starting from Bilsdean bridge the group walked along and down through Dunglas Dean and onto the beach. Passing on the way many fine examples of East Lothians geological past … including ice-age meltwater erosion in Dunglas Dean.
After a quick fire and cuppa the group went along the beach to marvel at the natural sea arches just north Bilsdean. The walk then continued up the river bed of Bilsdean Burn to Bisdean waterfall; a textbook example for Standard Grade Geography water-fall processes. The circuit was completed by going back under the A1 and railway lline in the drainage culverts to the mini-bus.
The afternoon provided many great examples of physical geography in action – hopefully images that will stay with these pupils through to their Standard Grade exams … and well beyond.
