Bonnie Badger, Gullane
Described by many as Scotland's golf coast, East Lothian is home to some superb courses, but it's also been the literary inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson and is home to the Glenkinchie Distillery, which makes The Edinburgh Malt. With its inspiring landscapes it's little wonder that much of the activity in this part of Scotland is outdoors. Horse riding along the beaches, paddle boarding along the coastline, spotting puffins, gannets, dolphins and enjoying the local produce served in hotels across the region. Seafood, steak, fruit liqueurs and Scottish cider are amongst the favourite culinary treats from East Lothian, and the local hotels and inns serve them up in superb style. In particular, head to The Bonnie Badger, half an hour from Edinburgh for one of the most chic gastropub experiences you could find. For romantic retreats, you will also fall in love with Greywalls, an Arts and Crafts Edwardian house in Gullane.
