Caroline Scott welcomes guests to stay for bed and breakfast at her family home, The Dean, on the edge of Longdiddry golf course, just east of Edinburgh.

Two of three guest bedrooms look over the 5th green and have views across the Firth of Forth to the Kingdom of Fife. The other has views over the garden. There's a tennis court (on which you are welcome to play), woodland walks, and because the house is on the edge of Longniddry village it's only a five minute walk to the local pubs and an excellent restaurant.

The Dean has really easy access to Edinburgh (under 20 minutes by bus, train or car) and is in the midst of some of the finest golf courses in Scotland (19 of them are shown in the map further down this page).

This is a friendly and informal place to stay. Caroline has lived in East Lothian all her life and she loves this part of Scotland and its local history. She is always happy give advice about where to go and what to see, from ruined castles and a whisky distillery, to sandy beaches, nature reserves, coastal walks and island boat trips. In addition she can help with booking golf as well as give you suggestions about sight-seeing and shopping in Edinburgh.
