East Lothian

East Lothian

Golf in it's purest form

East Lothian is a golfing Mecca! Never have I seen so many high quality golf courses in the same area.

The region has hosted The Open, Scottish Open, Open qualifying, Ladies Scottish Open and The World Hickory Championships, I think that says it all really!

The majority of the courses are traditional links with the odd exception. Muirfield is the most recognised course but is backed up by the delights of Gullane, North Berwick, Kilspindie, Archerfield, Renaissance, Craigielaw, Luffness, The Glen, Musselburgh the list goes on and on, just typing this makes my mouth water!

It is fair to say I know my way around the golf courses in East Lothian and I've also spent some time in the bars and restaurants! A lot of the accommodation and nightlife is focused around North Berwick, the up market town has a high street full of pubs and restaurants that are often full of post golf stories at the bar and always a great atmosphere.

North Berwick is also the perfect location to visit the nearby city of Edinburgh, hop on the train and in 25 minutes you arrive in the Centre of the historic city full of charm, breathtaking architecture, full of history, a city which I will never tire of.

Below is my thoughts on the region on a Wintery day in February 2018.
