How to find us ...

East Lothian is on the south side of the Firth of Forth, next door to Edinburgh.

It offers beautiful countryside, miles of golden sandy beaches, attractive and historic towns and villages – and some of Scotland’s best farmland.

A little help from our friends

are local cafes, restaurants, shops, delis and other top-quality food businesses.

Each one either stocks or makes good use of our members’ products.

They include some of our county’s most popular and exciting food destinations.
