Buying in Aberlady
Aberlady is an affluent, picturesque coastal village of roughly 1,300 residents in East Lothian on the Firth of Forth. It is situated about 3 miles southwest of Gullane, about 8 miles southwest of North Berwick, about 3.5 miles northeast of Longniddry and about 5 miles north of Haddington.
Aberlady once served as the port for Haddington, but today is more of a quiet commuter suburb for residents working in Edinburgh and some larger settlements in East Lothian. Residents must rely on car as the primary method of transport by way of the A198 and A6317 roads that allow for onward connections east, south, and west. The nearest train stations is located in Longniddry and takes about 10 minutes to reach. There are regular local bus services connecting residents to nearby settlements.
Aberfeldy has the usual array of local service and amenities you would expect in a village of this size. Residents would typically travel to Haddington or Musselburgh and surrounding settlements for a wider choice of shops and services.
Aberlady though does boasts the excellent golf courses of Luffness, Kilspindie and Craigielaw which draw many locals and visitors regularly. The shore of Aberlady is also a nationally important refuge for thousands of geese in the autumn. They are an incredible spectacle as they fly in to roost on the mudflats.
Aberlady Bay is an important local nature reserve and was the first in the UK, created back in 1952. The bay, between Aberlady and Gullane, is a site of special scientific interest. Waterston House, overlooking Aberlady Bay, is the headquarters of the Scottish Ornithologists’ Club (SOC). The Waterston House library holds over 3,500 items and is said to be the largest ornithological library in Scotland. Additionally, Aberlady Bay holds the wrecks of eight 19th or early 20th century fishing vessels, which have been designated as maritime scheduled ancient monuments, and two wrecks of XT-craft, training versions of the X-class submarine.

Buying in Musselburgh
Long known as the “Honest Toun” after a medieval story involving the devoted care of a Scottish nobleman by the people of the town, Musselburgh is a beautiful and historic town in East Lothian with much to suggest it’s long and storied history. Situated on the coast of the Firth of Forth, Musselburgh has a fine beach, much open green space and a true wealth of architecture.
Situated on the western edge of East Lothian (the town in fact used to lie in West Lothian), Musselburgh is a town which has saw quite extensive development around its historic core in the latter half of the twentieth century. This is a trend which has never really let up, and Musselburgh is attractive not only for its many landmarks – like Fisherow harbour, Musselburgh Racecourse and the stunning grounds of the prestigious Loretto school – but also for its close proximity to Edinburgh.
This nearness to the nation’s capital makes Musselburgh at once a popular commuter town as well as the host of a strong local economy as well. Musselburgh has the attraction of nationwide fame (the aforementioned racecourse for example) and its local prestigious schools (not only Loretto but also Musselburgh Grammar, one of the oldest grammar schools in the country) which drives jobs in the area. Housing development is also strong in Musselburgh, with recent developments such as proposed flats on the site of a former supermarket continuing a long trend of development and a buoyant property market in Musselburgh.
In terms of property types, Musselburgh bears testament to its long history and the eclectic development of more recent times. In Musselburgh, traditional properties such as granite terraces or sandstone tenements stand side-by-side with modern flats, bungalows and semi-detached properties.
The average price for property in Musselburgh stood at £234,187 in July 2021. This is a rise of 1.26% in the last three months since April 2021 and a good rise of 9.29% since July 2020.
