The Laurus House

The best kept secret in Gullane



Gullane is just under 20 miles from Edinburgh, and the pleasant coastal drive takes between 35 and 40 minutes. The easiest route is from Edinburgh to follow the Edinburgh Ring Route (signposted A1 to Berwick) and then take the A198 (signposted to North Berwick). If travelling from the South, take the A1 and come off on the A6093 exit and follow the A6137 to A198 in Gullane.

As always, Google Maps provides great tools to plan your route.
