Pinkie Cleugh Battlefield Walk

2017 marks the 470th anniversary of the Battle of Pinkie Cleugh, and a number of events will celebrate the anniversary, including this guided walk over the site of the Battle in 1547. 

The tour will start from the Roman Bridge over the River Esk in Musselburgh and take the route followed by the Scottish forces in the approach to their fateful encounter with the invading English Royal army. 

The walk will end at the battlefield Memorial Stone off Salter's Road, Wallyford, in time for the annual commemoration ceremony of the battle, led by the Old Musselburgh Club.

Walking is mostly on paved footpaths, but includes a section of steep steps leading up to St Michael's Church, Inveresk. 

This event is provided by the Pinkie Cleugh Battlefield Group.

Free Event.
