Aberlady, East Lothian

Aberlady is an attractive historic village on the beautiful East Lothian coast, about 15 miles east of Edinburgh.

It has been a farming community, a trading port and a holiday resort, and the old stone buildings in its long high street have many a tale to tell.

Its chief attractions today are Aberlady Bay, the first local nature reserve in Britain, and the fine links golf courses that flank the village to the east and west.
