Aberlady Links

The main coastal dune complex at Aberlady gives way inland to blown sands that form gently undulating terrain. These links rise to over 50 m on the flanks of Gullane Hill and are covered by a dense grass sward which formed the original carpet for the Gullane golf courses. The Luffness links generally lie above a degraded fossil cliff line at 9m O.D.
