The East Lothian region

East Lothian is located in the South East of Scotland, neighbouring the capital city of Edinburgh. The award winning coastline stretches along the southern edge of the Firth of Forth to the boundaries of the Scottish Borders. East Lothian is often referred to as Edinburgh's playground due to its close proximity to the city. The county covers approximately 257 square miles, allowing easy access to all of the local attractions.

With over 40 miles of magnificent coastline, golden beaches, rolling countryside, spectacular cliffs, award-winning tourist attractions and the world’s finest selection of links golf courses, East Lothian combines the best of Scotland in miniature! It may feel like a million miles away, but it’s only minutes from Edinburgh by car, train or bus!

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. The Lammermuirs to the south provide walkers and wildlife spotters with wide-open spaces where you might wander all day long without meeting another soul! With rolling countryside and a stunning coast, East Lothian has much to offer the outdoor enthusiast.

You are sure to find something unique when you shop in East Lothian. Our villages and towns are well served with names you will recognise but we also have excellent independent retailers offering exclusive merchandise. Many of our shops sell high quality locally crafted and sourced products. Whether you want to treat yourself, take home a souvenir or buy something for family and friends you are sure to find just the right thing.

East Lothian is known as the Garden of Scotland. There is a superb range of fresh local produce available throughout the year.

On the last Saturday of each month you can come and taste and buy local produce at Haddington Farmer’s Market. A range of first class cafes, bars, restaurants and hotels all prepare the finest food using the best of local ingredients.


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.

Within walking distance (10-15 mins) of Yellowcraig Loft is the Castle Inn Hotel and Restaurant, Dirleton Gallery (which has a daytime cafe), the Open Arms Hotel and the village store.Gullane has its own beach (ours is called Yellowcraig) and a good range of local shops, bars/restaurants.

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.
