On The Map: Gullane is a coastal village, located just 20 miles northeast of Edinburgh, along the A198 Road. North Berwick is 5 miles east of Gullane along the A198.
Gullane is an exceptionally pretty village, most famous for the large number of high quality golf courses in the area. Best known of these is Muirfield, which has hosted the British Open 16 times, and as recently as 2013. Gullane’s origins are ancient and a church was established in the town in the 9th century. One of the best beaches in East Lothian is at Gullane Bents, where the north and west facing Gullane Bay, backed by dunes, sweeps round from Gullane Point to Black Rocks. At Black Rocks it is possible to see the ruin of St Patrick’s Chapel, which is thought to date back to the early 1500s and was originally roofed in turf before at some time being lost in shifting sand. Gullane’s main street boasts a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants.
