East Lothian is home to a wide range of beautiful beaches and open ocean that provide perfect conditions for the watersport enthusiast!

Whether its stand up paddle, surfing or kayaking in the flat water lakes and waves, sailing or kitesurfing with the wind, exploring what's under the surface through diving or powering along the surface on powerboats and sightseeing tours this coastline really does have it all!

At East Lothian is the Musselburgh Lagoons - a fantastic small lake ideally suited for flat water supping. 

For exposed waters - there is the entire 40 mile length of the East Lothian coastline to play with. This includes award winning beaches; cliffs; castles; coves and the islands of the Forth (Craigleith; Fidra; The Lamb; Bass Rock).

All just a short way from Scotland’s Inspiring Capital city - Edinburgh.
