About the property

The West Wing is a 250-year-old Mill House resting above the River Tyne, within the village of East Linton.

This attractive property, a wing of the main house, is filled with comfortable interiors and charming traditional features to create a welcoming family base to this Scottish area.

Upon entering the cottage, you are greeted to a convenient porch, ideal for hanging up coats and muddy boots.

Unwind of an evening within the cosy sitting room, boasting a warming open fireplace and a large selection of books, perfect for those relaxing winter evenings.

From here you will discover a well-equipped kitchen/diner, complete with all the necessities you will require during your stay.

Follow the carpeted staircase up to the first floor, where you will find three well-appointed bedrooms.

The master bedroom boasts a king-size double with charming overlooking views of the owner’s well-kept garden, whilst the additional double and single bedrooms host a tranquil area for further guests.

Outside, you can relax with your family and friends within the enclosed rear garden, complete with table and chairs to enjoy the countryside location.

To appreciate the location further, you can visit the semi-ruined castle, Tantallon Castle which has breath-taking views of the Firth of Forth.

Within a ten-mile radius there are magnificent beaches, four historic castles, more than ten golf courses, and facilities for just about every sport, including sailing, surfing, wakeboarding, riding and hang gliding.

Alternatively, the city of Edinburgh is situated within a 40-minute drive of the property, where you can explore an abundance of shops, cafés, restaurants and pubs, in addition to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and tackling the Arthur's Seat hike.

There is a half-hourly express bus from the village direct to Princes Street, Edinburgh.

The village itself is unusual in having two pubs - both serving good food and only half a mile away.

About the location


Dunbar 6 miles; North Berwick 6 miles; Edinburgh 25 miles;

East Linton sits in East Lothian and was built over the River Tyne. Early settlement of this area dates back at least to the Iron Age with standing stones evident in the area, for example on Pencraig Hill. The village developed through construction of a number of mills built along the banks of the Tyne and Preston Mill is still working today as a National Trust property and this mill dates from the 1500s. Situated between North Berwick and Dunbar, the village has a good selection of shops, hotels, cafes, post office, pharmacy and ATM. Why not visit Hailes Castle or Tantallon Castle, walk or cycle some of the country paths or venture to the John Muir Country Park and enjoy superb forest walks as well as spectacular Belhaven Bay and Seacliff Beach. With good bus links and rail links from Drem and Dunbar, Edinburgh is only a short journey away and makes a fantastic day out.
