This region is home to the beautiful city of Edinburgh, with its abundant history and culture, as well as world famous events. There’s also wonderful coastal scenery to enjoy, as well as some fantastic golf courses. Edinburgh and Lothians holiday homes are normally original stone buildings full of historic flourishes.

Things to do

-Museums. On holiday in Edinburgh and the Lothians you could visit the Museum of Scotland and connected Royal Museum, which feature collections relating to Scotland’s history, with a wealth of archaeological artefacts, but also galleries devoted to natural history and geology. Art lovers should head for the high-profile National Gallery of Scotland and Scotland National Gallery of Modern Art.

-Landmarks. Edinburgh’s Old Town and its New Town are both listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, with immense historical interest. The Royal Mile can be found here, with the world-famous Edinburgh Castle, St Giles’ Cathedral, as well as the Abbey and Palace of Holyroodhouse, which holds the Queen’s extensive collection of art.

-Events. The Edinburgh Festival is the umbrella name for a variety of different festivals and events that take place in the city during the summer months. These include the sophisticated Edinburgh International Festival, as well as the Fringe Festival, which tends to be more off-beat and feature comedy performances.

-Golf. Since Golf originated not far from Edinburgh, it makes sense to enjoy a round at one of the numerous nearby courses. Some offer spectacular views of city landmarks like Edinburgh Castle. Two of the country’s most prestigious – Muirfield and Musselburgh are set here, while Gullane in East Lothian is home to three links courses of its own.

-Nightlife. Edinburgh with its cosmopolitan population offers some excellent dining, from Michelin-starred restaurants to traditional pubs, some of the best of which can be found in the Rose Street area. There are also plenty of lively nightspots, with nightclubs, music venues and all kinds of bars around Cowgate and Lothian Road.

Travel to Edinburgh and Lothians

Edinburgh Airport (EDI) is the busiest in Scotland and one of the busiest in the UK, with connections to cities throughout the UK and Europe, including Scandiavia, Central Europe and the Mediterranean. Once here, there’s an extensive road network, although congestion can be an issue during peak times.

The property is about a mile from the centre of Gullane which has a good selection of pubs, restaurants and a great fish and chip shop! The golf in the surrounding area is outstanding and plenty of choice to satisfy all levels of the game. The North Berwick coast is beautiful with great walks and if fine then lovely sunsets across the Forth estuary. Well worth going back again.

The owners gave us a warm welcome and made sure we understood how everything worked. It was convenient for shops, restaurants and buses and we had a really good week. The neighbours were friendly too!
