East Lothian – Over forty miles of magnificent coastline

East Lothian is home to some of the world’s finest golf courses, golden beaches, enchanting towns and pretty harbours. There are miles of scenic country paths ideal for walking and cycling, as well as a superb selection of local food and drink offerings.

Haddington & East Linton

Both towns are situated snugly under the Garleton Hills along the banks of the River Tyne. Agriculture has long been their local industry and still today people enjoy the popular Farmers’ Market and a stroll to The Linn, a picturesque waterfall.

Aberlady Bay nature reserve

Aberlady Bay was established in 1952 as Britain’s first nature reserve. There are beautiful walks across the reserve, beginning by crossing the famous ‘footbridge to enchantment’. The variety of birds, plants and geology have made it a site of special scientific interest (SSSI). Definitely worth visiting.
