With regionalisation the old counties of East Lothian, West Lothian and Midlothian have all been lumped together to form Lothian, with its administrative capital being the beautiful city of Edinburgh. Although Edinburgh is one of the area’s favourite attractions there are hidden gems outwith the city just dying to be discovered and explored.
East Lothian is Scotlands Sunshine Coast and officially the sunniest and driest area in Scotland.
It is also the ancient home of golf and you’ll find some of the greatest links and parkland courses of the world here, including the world famous Muirfield Links. Visit the farmers’ markets in Haddington and the quarterly Slow Food Festival at North Berwick, and you can try out some of the best food and drink to be found in East Lothian, and don’t forget to sample Scotland’s national drink at the five star Glenkinchie Distillery.
There are loads of free activities in East Lothian, miles and miles of beautiful beaches, perfect for picnics, muddling about in the rock pools, or long walks round the sandy bays. There are some great children’s play parks, suitable from tots right through to teens and Lauderdale park in Dunbar situated within a walled garden, complete with café for coffee and cakes (you have to pay for those).
