Welcome to our region- East Lothian!

This is a map of our region, East Lothian. East Lothian is found to the east of Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh. It's a beautiful region, with many lovely fields of farmland, rolling hills and a very attractive coastline. We have many beaches here in East Lothian- but the sea is not warm. Even in summer, the temperature of the water is only around 12- 13C, so if you want to swim here, you need to be able to get in and out of the water quickly!

There are several towns in East Lothian. Haddington is the largest town in the centre of the region, and other main towns include North Berwick, Musselburgh Tranent and Dunbar. We hope you can see our village of Gifford on the map! Welcome to East Lothian...
