Duncan Laing and RE/MAX Advantage are pleased to bring to the market this spacious 4 Double Bedroom, Semi-Detached cottage located by the shore in the East Lothian town of Prestonpans. The property, formerly two cottages, now forms a substantial single property that retains its original cottage feel. Nestled at the end of a lane leading to the shore the property sits directly on the "John Muir Way", a 134 mile walking route that stretches from Helensburgh in the West of Scotland to Dunbar in the East and is named in the honour of the conservationist John Muir who was born in Dunbar in 1838. Located just a few yards from the shore front, the property benefits from excellent, uninterrupted views across the Firth of Forth to the Fife coastline. Brought to the market in excellent condition, this property really must be viewed to appreciate fully what is on offer.

The seaside villages and towns of Longniddry, Aberlady, Gullane, North Berwick and Dunbar, with their golf courses and sandy beaches, are all available by driving down the beautiful East Lothian coastline.
