Spring into East Lothian

Visit East Lothian | Thursday 7th March 2019 9:00am

Planning a spring escape? There's lots to do in East Lothian! The Visit East Lothian team spent an amazing weekend at the Scottish Cycling, Running & Outdoor Pursuits Show showcasing the range of outdoor activity and experiences on offer.  Our new Go East Lothian Trail proved extremely popular with cycling enthusiasts and the zipline gave a flavour of the thrilling outdoor treetop ziptrail at Foxlake Adventures.

Walkers were interested in the John Muir Way and the John Muir link as well as the many paths and trails that run throughout our coast and countryside.


For the watersports fan, you can't beat a trip to Dunbar, North Berwick or Longniddry where you can surf, SUP, kite-surf, kayak and sail to your hearts content.

Scotland's Golf Coast is promoting some great packages this spring, don't miss the chance to play some of the the world's best courses, stay in welcoming accommodation and enjoy fresh local food and drink.


Mother's Day is fast approaching, East Lothian is the perfect destination to spoil that special lady.  Why not enjoy an outdoor activity and then treat her to a delicious lunch or sumptuous afternoon tea.  

Here are just some of our top spots for afternoon tea.  Frangipane is a real hidden gem, this pop up tea room in Longniddry has some of the best home baking around.  Be sure to check direct with them for their next event.  Lewis & Clarke Artisan Kitchen will even deliver a traditional afternoon tea direct to your door, so everyone can relax.  Archerfield Walled Garden  is offering a menu full of tasty mouthwatering bites over the Mother's Day weekend.

For lunches, you can't go wrong with The Bonnie Badger, recently awarded AA 5 star status.  Tom Kitchin's new restaurant with rooms is sure to please.  Set on the harbour at North Berwick, The Rocketeer is famed for seafood fresh off the boat.  The newly refurbished Rocks Bar & Restaurant is the perfect setting on top of dramatic cliffs in Dunbar.  With sea view rooms and a menu featuring the best of local produce, it' a winner!


So what are you waiting for, start planning your spring visit today!
