For golf lovers, you will be in paradise. Gifford has 2 golf courses and East Lothian is host to 18 more including the famous Muirfield, the scene of many British Opens.
The coastline varies between wide, empty beaches and rocky inlets, fishing harbours and quaint villages. Paths for walking and cycling are plentiful and castles and interesting places to visit are around most corners.
Duncanlaw is a working farm, situated on the Duns Rd, about a half mile from the delightful small village of Gifford in the parish of Yester.

Gifford also has pubs and cafes, a newsagent, a garage and a well stocked store. It is also 4 miles from the market town of Haddington, which has a supermarket and many interesting shops.
