East Lothian, rightly known as “Scotland’s Golf Coast”, boasts some of the best links courses and inland golf courses in the world, including North Berwick, Gullane, Dunbar and even Muirfield where this year’s Open was hosted.

There are 22 excellent golf courses within 10 to 20 minutes drive of Winton House, just half an hour from Edinburgh in East Lothian. These include Craigielaw, Royal Musselburgh (the oldest playing golf course in the world) and Longniddry, with friendly clubhouses and affordable green fees.

The owners of Winton played a critical role in developing East Lothian’s most famous golf courses because they owned the lands of Muirfield, Archerfield and Gullane.

If you are planning a golf break with friends, you might be interested in Winton Estate’s large, luxury self-catering country houses. Georgian Wintonhill Farmhouse is a 4 star self-catering farmhouse, which sleeps 12 to 14 people, complete with its own practice bunker and chipping area. There is also Winton Cottage, another extremely comfortable 5 star self-catering farmhouse with lots of character; it has 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, and comfortably sleeps up to 10 to 12. Catering can also be provided.

“Wintonhill Farmhouse and Winton Cottage are amongst the best self-catering properties in East Lothian, and we can also advise visitors on booking and planning  their golf rounds”, says James Maitland from Winton.
