What’s on Edinburgh and The Lothians

The Lothians consist of East Lothian, Midlothian and West Lothian, and together they make up Edinburgh’s superb surrounding coast and countryside. Here you can discover many tales of Scotland’s past in stately homes, dramatic castles and medieval chapels. Although not far from Scotland’s capital city, they offer a complete contrast to the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh with its city streets steeped in history, thriving cultural scene and diverse range of attractions.
