Top 5 Things To Do In Musselburgh East Lothian
Musselburgh is a lovely old market town just outside Edinburgh. It boasts a famous racecourse, beach & golf course. Best of all it is less than 10 minutes by train from Edinburgh Waverley making it a great place to stay to get both a country & city feel from your holiday in Scotland.
Our top 5 things to do in Musselburgh:
Have a day out at the oldest racecourse in Scotland, Mussleburgh Racecourse.
Get a short round of golf in at the 9 hole links course Musselburgh Links. Apparently Mary Queen of Scots played here in 1567!
Keep the kids entertained with a 4k scenic trail along the River Esk where they can take crayon rubbings along the way & search for a 10 word phrase!
You may have heard of S Luca’s Icecream, a famous Ice cream parlor whose flagship cafe is in Musselburgh. A must visit for hungry kids & adults!
Grab your National Trust cards & head to Newhailes House & Gardens, a great day out with a play park, walks & cafes to keep everyone well fed & happy.
