Hotels in East Lothian

Described by many as Scotland's golf coast, East Lothian is home to some superb courses, but it's also been the literary inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson and is home to the Glenkinchie Distillery, which makes The Edinburgh Malt. With its inspiring landscapes it's little wonder that much of the activity in this part of Scotland is outdoors.
