From the station, walk up the road and turn right. Walking downhill, you can see the sea over the buildings in front of you - the beach is at the bottom of the hill. The sea will now be on your right for most of the walk until Belhaven. Landmarks include harbours, the swimming pool, the Rocks Hotel, a golf course, and Belhaven Bay (first left after going under the railway), rugby/football pitchs (after coming though woods). There are signs for the station after coming back under the railway.
