The Lothians region offers a wonderful mix of historic sites and buildings such as Tantallon Castle, The National Museum of Flight, Linlithgow Palace, Rosslyn Chapel, the Scottish Mining Museum and Hopetoun House. We also have the beautiful beaches of East Lothian, attractions including the Butterfly & Insect World and Scottish Seabird Centre, the world class shopping experience in Livingston and quality accommodation of Macdonald Houstoun House and Marine Hotels. What's more we are right next door to Edinburgh, Scotland's capital city and easily accessible by all modes of transport.
Visiting the Lothians is an opportunity to escape the city and enjoy the convenience, prices and attractions of being outwith the city. In the Lothians you can enjoy a synergy of heritage and nature – from historic Dirleton and Tantallon castles in East Lothian, Rosslyn Chapel in Midlothian and Hopetoun House in West Lothian to the stunning beaches and John Muir Country Park in East Lothian, Roslin Glen and Vogrie Country Parks in Midlothian and the lochside walks in Linlithgow. We offer attractive destination towns and shopping opportunities, often with independent and local retailers, and great coffee and lunch stops.
2016 will mark the Year of Innovation, Architecture & Design (which the Lothians have plenty of) so make sure you don't miss out on seeing some of our best bitsSample Itineraries
