Inveresk is a village just outside Musselburgh, around six miles from Edinburgh city centre and comprising of mainly large 18th century mansions and Victorian family homes. Within the village is a historic National Trust property with garden, Georgian church and the upper part of Lewisvale Park. There is also access to lovely walks along the River Esk. Musselburgh has an excellent range of shops including a 24 hour Tesco and two budget supermarkets, Clark’s famous fishmongers, a wine merchant and an organic fruit and vegetable shop. There are two leisure centres, each with a swimming pool, sailing from the harbour, the racecourse, Brunton Hall theatre and a good variety of restaurants. A little to the south-east lies the Fort Kinnaird Retail Park with various outlets including Marks and Spencer, Boots, Monsoon etc. and a nearby Asda supermarket.
There is a choice of rail transport giving rapid journey times to Edinburgh Waverley. Wallyford, approximately one mile to the east, provides a popular park and ride with a 12 minute trip, whilst Musselburgh affords only an 8 minute trip. Regular bus services take you to and from Edinburgh and many parts of the Lothians. A very short drive south takes you to the A1, the bypass, and onto the central motorway network.
