Make the Move

Just a few miles west of Edinburgh, Prestonpans is a small coastal East Lothian town with a great history. Once a lively salt panning and mining community, the town was the site of the Battle of Prestonpans, part of the eighteenth century Jacobite Rising. Today it is celebrated as Scotland’s ‘Mural Town’, with art pieces celebrating the diverse heritage of the Prestonpans ancestors.

Prestonpans offers a friendly coastal community within easy reach of Edinburgh.

Prestonpans’ nearest airport is in Edinburgh, which can be reached in 30 minutes by car. A flight to London takes one hour 20 minutes, with various other international and domestic flights on offer

Places of interest

While Prestonpans is a relatively small town, it has a great deal of interesting architecture including the fifteenth century Preston Tower, and Preston Mercat Cross - a monument likely constructed by the same Hamilton family who originally occupied the Tower. Prestongrange Museum explores Scotland’s Industrial Revolution.

The town also has a good sporting scene, with its own cricket club, local non-league football and rugby team. Most notably, it is home to Royal Musselburgh Golf Club, the sixth oldest golf club in the world.

Each year, The Three Harbours Festival links Prestonpans with its two neighbours, Cockenzie and Port Seton. The festival lasts for a fortnight, and celebrates the strong local art scene with workshops, tours and artist meet and greets.

One of the most popular attractions in Prestonpans is the Mural Trail, encompassing an impressive 35 works of art across the town. Further afield, Dalkeith Country Park has open parkland with an Adventure Playground, while Vogrie Country Park offers a slice of tranquility in a Victorian estate. Vogrie also has a miniature railway and a nine hole golf course.

Educational facilities

The University of Edinburgh can be reached in just 20 minutes from Prestonpans along the A1. The institution often ranks in the UK’s top 20 universities, and is especially respected in the fields of nursing, medicine, science, law and engineering. It also tops the rankings for many design, art and photography courses. The Scottish capital is also home to Edinburgh Napier University.
