Edinburgh, East Lothian, Lothians
Officially the sunniest area of Scotland, East Lothian combines the best of Scotland in miniature! The most dramatic part of the region is undoubtedly the 40 or so miles of coastline running from Musselburgh - all but joined onto Edinburgh - round to Dunbar.
Here you'll find golden beaches such as those at Gullane, Yellowcraig and Dunbar, spectacular cliffs, plus the world's finest selection of links golf courses including Gullane and North Berwick.
Other popular attractions include studying the wildlife at North Berwick's award-winning Scottish Seabird Centre, viewing Scotland's Concorde up close at The National Museum of Flight at East Fortune, enjoying a flutter on the horse racing at Musselburgh and of course, enjoying a wee dram at Glenkinchie Distillery at the foot of the Lammermuir Hills.
No visit to the region would be complete without a visit to Rosslyn Chapel made famous in the DaVinci Code book. One of Scotland’s most remarkable buildings, Rosslyn Chapel has been in the ownership of the Sinclair family since its foundation in 1446 and is still used today as a place of worship. Its architecture is also considered to be among the finest in Scotland.
Scotland's Golf Course
While many focus on the golfing delights to be found on the north side of the Firth of Forth in the Kingdom of Fife, it should not be forgotten that the coastline on the other flank of the Firth is home to the largest concentration of links golf courses anywhere in the world, and they’re strung out like pearls in a necklace from Aberlady through to Dunbar.
East Lothian bills itself as 'Scotland's Golf Coast' and one look at a map of the region is enough to confirm the legitimacy to that claim. Located just 30 minutes from Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, the region is home to over 20 superb courses to play.
