Holiday Park 8 miles from Edinburgh City Centre
Things to do near Edinburgh
A glance at our map will reveal the unique situation of Drum Mohr Holiday Park. Twenty minutes to the west lies Princes Street in the heart of Scotland's capital, Edinburgh - while on the other hand, the beautiful East Lothian countryside beckons. Thus Drum Mohr is not likely to be a place you will choose for an overnight stop. You'll want to sample at length this area of contrasts.
While you will be drawn to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and all the history of the Royal Mile in between - plus all the city amenities from Arthur's Seat to the Zoo - the sheer tranquility of East Lothian's villages, the dramatic coastline, miles of sandy beaches, fine castles, stately homes and the wild places in the Lammermuir Hills should all be part of your holiday experience here.
The John Muir Way
The John Muir Way stretches 134 miles or 215 km across Scotland’s heartland, running between Helensburgh in the west through to Dunbar on the east coast and Muir's birthplace. It'll take you 7-10 days to walk and about half that by bike. Enjoy the beautiful beaches , rivers, roman ruins and nature reserves along the way. Or just enjoy part of the John Muir Way while you stay with us.

Things to do near East Lothian
East Lothian too is reckoned to have more golf courses for its size than just about any other place in Britain (there's one right next door! - The Royal Musselburgh Golf Course) and with such an unspoiled coastline, sailing enthusiasts too have a choice of picturesque harbours.
In fact, the choice starts right next door with another of our neighbours. Preston Grange Mining Museum is just a few minutes walk away. Children of all ages (and adults too) will be fascinated by the Giant Beam Engine - and there's a live steam locomotive too.
You'll want to visit the spectacular Tantallon Castle on its rocky headland; take a boat ride round the Bass Rock with its huge gannet colony; walk the nature trails on the John Muir Country Park, explore the ancient harbour at Dunbar; visit the gardens at Tynninghame House...the list is only beginning.
