East Lothian is a great place to visit if you like the outdoors. With miles of beautiful coastline, providing a playground for water sports activities from surfing in Dunbar to sailing in North Berwick. The coast is also the route for the John Muir Way, a long distance walk taking in the full cost of East Lothian from Musselburgh to Dunbar.

Our part of East Lothian is famous for its golf and is home to more first class courses along this short stretch of course than you can shake a stick at. Top of the list must be Muirfield itself, with Luffness, Dirleton, Gullane, Archerfield, North Berwick and Dunbar close behind.

Dirleton is most famous for its Castle which was one of the first castles to be built around 1100, introduced by incoming feudal lords from Normandy, Brittany and Flanders. The de Vaux family, who came from Normandy in the 12th century settled first in a manor house at Elbottle (close to our villa in Archerfield) and then early in the next century relocated to Dirleton village where John de Vaux built the yellow sandstone Castle. During the civil war in the 1640s, Dirleton Castle was occupied by Moss Troopers but in November 1650 they were forced to surrender to Oliver Cromwell's army under the command of General Monk who bombarded the ramparts into the ruin you can see today.
There is the Scottish Seabird Centre only 2 miles drive to North Berwick where you can charter a boat or enjoy a trip out to one of the Islands of the coastline.
