Hotels in Musselburgh
Set in a historical town on the coast of the Firth of Forth, Musselburgh hotels are an excellent base for exploring the countryside of East Lothian and the nearby city of Edinburgh.
Musselburgh Links dates back to 1672 although there is evidence to suggest that Mary Queen of Scots played golf on the site of the current course in 1567. The nine-hole course is open to visitors and is a great choice for both beginners and more experienced players.
Museums and houses
The best place to learn about the town history and its longstanding connection to the nearby city of Edinburgh is the Musselburgh Museum. The museum features many photographs, artefacts and documents charting the area's history and is worth visiting for a few hours. In nearby Prestongrange there is the Prestongrange Museum, located in a former colliery and dedicated to detailing Scotland's industrial heritage.
In the village of Inveresk you'll find Shepherd House with an elegant one-acre garden that's perfect for family picnics.
