Scientific interest

The mud flats at Port Edgar which are exposed at low tide are part of an extensive Firth of Forth Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Much of the shoreline and the islands in the Firth are covered by national and international designations. It’s a great place to watch for wildlife, including seals, dolphins and porpoises, or view a great diversity of birds, especially waders that favour the mudflats.


Great cycling

A great way to reach Port Edgar is by bike. From Edinburgh you can cycle all the way to the marina via the Sustrans path. You can also enjoy the exciting Vat Run mountain bike trail at South Queensferry.
