Aberlady Mains House
near Edinburgh
East Lothian

Sally and Robert Belderbos welcome guests to stay for bed and breakfast at their family home on the edge of Aberlady, a small village overlooking the Firth of Forth, 3 miles from the three golf courses at Gullane.

The house was built in 1780 and enlarged in Victorian times, and still has its original decorative plaster cornices and handsome fireplaces. Set in 3 acres of lovely gardens with magnificent trees it is rural and quiet, though only about 20 miles from Edinburgh.

Golfers will probably already know that Aberlady is very central for some of the best golf in Scotland: Muirfield, the home of the Open Golf Championship, is 4 miles away. Gullane (3 courses), Luffness, Kilspindie and Craigielaw are even closer (later in this page is a map of 18 golf courses within 40 minutes drive). Even St Andrews is possible in a day.

Apart from golf - and visiting Edinburgh - other recommended trips are: wandering around the castles at Haddington, Dirleton and Tantallon, visiting Glenkinchie whisky distillery, or taking a boat round the Bass Rock to see kittiwakes, puffins and the largest colony of gannets in Europe. One of the best excursions is the pleasant ten minute walk from the house through the village to Aberlady Bay Nature Reserve to see migrating wildfowl, waders and seabirds.
