Managed by the Woodland Trust, Butterdean Wood lies a couple of miles from Haddington, near the hamlet of Gladsmuir. There are two waymarked paths (which can sometimes be muddy), which make for ideal walks through the woods. Roe deer graze in the woods and there’s a rich selection of flora and fauna, with the birdlife including wren, goldcrest, long-tailed tits and chaffinches. Four imaginative metal sculptures by artist David Freedman have also been created. These feature wildlife including a Celtic wild boar, a billy witch (a kind of beetle) and a wood wasp.
