  • Nearest beach 0 km
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car not necessary

  • Private garden

We have recently changed the beach bothy bunk room to a king size luxury bed in our very cosy beach bunk house. There is a 40 inch TV at the bottom of the bed and with great wifi there is shows such as breaking bad on netflicks, how about staying the weekend and just watching that IN BED !!. There is also a dinning table, and of course the room is ensuite.

We can make provision for an additional 2 people, ideally children, by using a sofa bed. If you should want to leave the Koseee double bed and venture on to the beach with a mug of tea there is also kitchen facilities available and a kettle in the room, but as the restaurants are very affordable in the quaint fishing village of fisherrow, Musselburgh why cook on holiday.

If you want to head into Edinburgh for the evening, then the bus on the door step takes you straight there in 20 minutes to the very centre of the city in Princess street.

Photos are to follow of the intimate, kosee beach room on the shores of the river Forth.

About this location

The East Lothian region

We are ideally situated in the central region of Scoltand which is so convenient for touring Scoltand and Uk and with Edinburgh Airport easily reached within half an hour. The rail service in Edinburgh is also easily reached by the number 44, 26 and 30 bus route less about 40 minutes away. Inverness is about a 3 hours leisurely drive North going via Glencoe. St Andrews is just over a one hour drive away in Fife.

Edinburgh is rank one of the worlds top 10 cities in the World especially during the festival in August, it is such a beautiful, fun and small city to visit with bars and restaraurants nestled nicely within the ancient city.

Our unique beach bothy bunks is on the boundary with an old fishing area called Fisherrow in Musselburgh and Edinburghs sea side area called Joppa and Portobello. We are 5 seconds from the beach, so sleep well with the soothing sound of waves after a busy day site seeing the Capital or the places of history and Sport in East Lothian.


As the accommodation is away from the main road its peaceful and safe for children. Being so near to the beach you can walk down with your cuppa and sit by a beach fire watching the late sun go down.

The bothy is self catering but breakfast can be arranged. For tea there are several carry out food shops about 5 - 10 minutes walk away including at least 5 chip shops.

If you have a dog they will love the beach and Newhailes estate just under 5 minutes walk away where you will find a big manor house to visit with a coffee shop in the grounds.

Musselburgh is famous for bird watching and our acccommodation is positioned just right for bird watching as there is a fresh water stream flowing onto the mussel beds in the fiver Forth where its safe for water sports. We would be an ideal base for both cyclist and motor cycles as we have a good size drive way for parking and a garage to keep bikes safe.

"“Overnight at Mackenzie 'Bunks' was a good experience”"

I believe this accommodation used to be more of a hostel - hence the name I would imagine. It is positioned about 30 seconds stroll from the beach at Fisherrow, Musselburgh. It has several free parkin… More

"Perfect location right on the beach at Musselburgh"

Alistair and Gill were great hosts and we were the first guests to stay in their beach bothy. It was ideal base for us as it was right next to the marathon course and right on the beach which the dogs loved. The bothy is very well presented and tastefully decorated. We were lucky the weather was good so that we could sit outside on the decking in the evening sunshine. There is not a lot of room inside but it was fine for us to use as a base.
