Directions


Blinkbonny is situated on the edge of the Lammermuirs in East Lothian. It is close to Longyester - nearest post code EH41 4PL but do not rely on this once you get to Longyester.

To drive: Haddington is the nearest large town and is close to the A1 expressway. From Haddington follow signs to Gifford. On coming to Gifford turn right at the church and continue through the village. On leaving the village take the first left just before Gifford Golf Club, toward Longyester. Continue along this road for about three miles, passing Yester farm and the sign to Castle Park Golf Club. Turn right at Longyester farm, and continue for about half mile and you will have arrived at Blinkbonny. For sat nav users - please don't rely on the postcode to get you to the wood - it is the nearest postcode and will only get you to Longyester. If you come to a telephone box you missed the right turn at Longyester farm.
