About the neighbourhood
The surrounding area boasts an abundance of stunning beaches and pretty farmland. Although less than an hour from Edinburgh, the pace of life is very different. There are lots of pretty towns and villages, with a great choice of gastro pubs, restaurants and quirky independent shops and galleries, offering everything from original art to handmade chocolate! There is a huge choice of things to do, including popular destinations such as The Scottish Seabird Centre, The National Museum of Flight, Tantallon or Dirleton Castle and Gardens and of course, a day trip to the beautiful capital of Scotland.
Getting around
Regular buses to Edinburgh and Dunbar, but a car is useful for exploring the beaches and countryside
