The Biel Water is a small river running through the village of Biel to the south of Dunbar, in Scotland. It runs for 4.5 kilometers from the Luggate Burn and the Whittinghame Water, through the village and finally to Belhaven Bay. Just before it empties into the North Sea, the river – actually a small stream – flows under a short footbridge. At low tide, it’s possible to walk over the bridge, crossing the stream and onto sands that lay beyond. However, when the tide comes in, the bridge gets submerged and appears to be stranded in the middle of the sea serving no obvious purpose to surprised onlookers.

Photographing the bridge at high tide is hence a favorite activity among tourists and beach goers. Belhaven Bay itself is a beautiful beach, located within the John Muir Country Park, in one of the sunniest part of Scotland. The beach stretches from Belhaven to the north of the River Tyne. It is fringed by low, sheltering sand dunes, rich salt marsh and colourful grasslands, and is ideal for walking, having picnics and sunbathing and affords splendid views across the Forth Estuary.
