Golf, golf, golf in gorgeous Gullane You'll need be able to put the ball ten foot from the flag in a stiff sea breeze, but great golfers love playing at Muirfield - devilish links course, Open venue and home course of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers. There are three other golf courses in Gullane, all of them pretty spectacular, although you may need to book in advance to get on.
Gullane is a well-kept village along the coast of the Firth of Forth from Edinburgh. It has a superb sweep of beach that attracts legions of sandcastle makers or windsurfers, depending on the weather. Nearby attractions include the very well kept Dirleton, with its double village green and ruined castle; Myreton Motor Museum and the Museum of Flight at East Fortune.
