Gifford

The pretty village of Gifford is located at the foot of the Lammermuir Hills a few miles south of Haddington.  With picturesque houses, church and town square, the village is an ideal place to spend a relaxing afternoon before heading into the Lammermuirs.   At weekends watch the numbers of cyclists riding through as they continue on up to Redstone Rig and beyond!

What to see and do...

  • Take a walk to visit the ancient ruins of Yester Castle located not far from the village.  The castle was built during the 13th century, it's most famous feature is the Goblin Ha' built by Sir Hugo de Giffard who was known as 'The Wizard of Yester'.  
  • Have lunch at either the Goblin ‘Ha or Tweeddale Arms Hotel.
