East Lothian is officially the sunniest area of Scotland. With a varied landscape that includes sandy beaches, cliffs, and dunes along the coast, farmland, and the backdrop of the Lammermuir Hills, East Lothian residents have a lot of opportunities to make the most of all that sunshine. Like much of Scotland, East Lothian is heaven for equestrians and golfers as well as for whisky drinkers and wildlife watchers. North Berwick is connected to Edinburgh, which is on the East Coast railway line to London. The area is also well-connected by road, and Edinburgh airport is easily accessible. There also is a great deal of choice in schools, including state and independent options. With property ranging from cottages to country houses available at affordable prices, East Lothian is an ideal spot for a family.
