The additional accommodation can sleep up to 2 people and there is also a shower room and WC. As part of the accommodation there is a small kitchen and washing facilities so its an ideal self catering holiday for up to 6 people at a reasonable price. The location is near to railways, airports ferries so it makes a good base to see the rest of Scotland and uk.

As we are by the beach the accommodation has a sea feel and as you sleep you can hear the waves rolling onto the beach its so peaceful, a complete remedy.

We can provide tours if you would prefer to take a break from visitng the Capital of Scotland.

Both Gill and I - Alastair, want to make this a memorable and comfortable experience of Scotland. We will make every effort to make your holiday as restful as we can. Ideal location for a family, biker groups, bird watchers will love this location as its at a unique estuary from magdalenes burn int othe forth.

The Lothians 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.

"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.
