AS BEFITS a county that boasts both breathtaking natural beauty and a position on the doorstep of Scotland’s capital city, East Lothian has historically been home to a large number of hotels, ranging from cosy bed and breakfasts to some of the most grand accommodation in Scotland.

This week, we take a look at some of the county’s hotels over the last century – many of which are now, sadly, no more.
