Gullane - Take a short drive East along the coast road - from Aberlady - and you come to the village of Gullane which is famous for its sand. I of course mean the sand in the bunkers of the golf courses at each end of the village, and the golden sands of the very popular beach. Of the golf courses the best known is Muirfield which is a regular venue for the British Open Championship.
There is a selection of shops, including a chemist and bank on the main road through the village.
Castle overlooking the village green. There is a general store in the middle of the village, also two hotels. It has one of the most picturesque bowling greens - in the grounds of the castle. At the east end of Dirleton there is road access to Yellowcraig beach.
Longniddry - This village, just over 2 miles to the West of Aberlady has a small number of shops ( including a chemist ), garages and a bank. It also has a railway station, with a regular service to Edinburgh and North Berwick. To the North is a beach with ample parking. There is also a golf club
North Berwick - Travel a little over 7 miles East of Aberlady, through Gullane and past Dirleton Castle and you arrive at the seaside 'resort' of North Berwick.
For the sporty types there is two golf courses, tennis courts, bowling green and at the top of Law Road the local sports centre and swimming pool.
North Berwick also has a Library, Banks, Chemists, Tourist Information Centre and a Railway Station with a direct service to Edinburgh. All of this in the shadow of the imposing North Berwick Law, a volcanic crag that dominates the Southern aspect of the town. During the Napoleonic Wars it was a good vantage point for lookouts.
Drem - This small village has a railway station and is close to the Sunday Market which is held on part of the former East Fortune Airfield. Just a few hundred yards South of the market entrance is the Museum of Flight, where Concorde is now on display.
