Gullane



Enjoyed a half day at Gullane (pronounced Gillan), a small village surrounded by golf courses on one side (such as Muirfield, frequent venue of the British Open), and a lovely stretch of beach on t'other. It's an easy half hour drive south east along the coast from Leith (pronounced Gdansk).



During WWII, the Gullane bends were used as a training area for the Normandy invasion, a fitting location, given the influx of Normans to this area in the 12th century.
