Local information

  • King's Cairn is an exclusive new residential development within the renowned Archerfield Estate, in the beautiful coastal countryside of East Lothian, between Gullane and Dirleton. Lying just east of the famous Muirfield Links, and nearby Gullane, Luffness and North Berwick golf courses, the Estate has its own rich golfing history, with the first game taking place here in 1868, and an 18 hole course created in 1910. There are now three prestigious golf courses within Archerfield Estate: Fidra Links, Dirleton Links, of which King's Cairn is located just to the north of, and The Renaissance Club. The amenities are further augmented by The Walled Garden farm and gift shop, restaurant and microbrewery, award-winning Fletcher's Cottage Spa with adjacent gym, golf academy building and welcoming clubhouse.
  • Complementing the varied choice of golf courses, the area, one of natural scenic beauty, offers beautiful sandy beaches, including Yellowcraig – one of East Lothian's finest; bird sanctuaries and historic buildings to explore.
