Inveresk is situated only 6 miles east of Edinburgh City Centre. This prestigious Conservation village comprises mainly large 18th century mansions and Victorian family homes. It is reputed to have been continuously occupied since the establishment of the original Roman settlement. Within the village is a historic National Trust property with garden, historic church and the upper part of Lewisvale Park. There is access to lovely walks along the River Esk. Approximately 1 mile to the north lies bustling Musselburgh with an excellent range of shops including a 24 hour Tesco and two budget supermarkets, also Clarks famous fishmongers, wine merchant and organic fruit/vegetable shop. There are two leisure centres each with 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 shopping centre with various popular retail outlets and nearby Asda supermarket. Regular bus services take you to and from Edinburgh City Centre serving many parts of Lothian and beyond. Road access to town is straightforward. A very short drive south takes you to the A1 (Musselburgh), Bypass connecting with the Sheriffhall roundabout (A7, A68) then onto the City Bypass, Gyle shopping centre/Business Park, the Airport and Central Scottish Motorway Network.
