Green Craig is situated on a private estate on the shores of the Firth of Forth and enjoys uninterrupted views over the sea to Edinburgh and Fife beyond. The house is ideally suited for golfing and family holidays there are twenty two golf courses within a thirty minute drive!
Built in 1923 for the family of the Earl of Wemyss, Green Craig lies minutes from Gullane and is just 15 miles east of Edinburgh.
Privately situated in 50 acres of mature woodland, Green Craig is a wonderful holiday home for a large family, a golfing party or a corporate function.
Golf: Scotland, and East Lothian in particular, is considered a golfer’s paradise, for both players and spectators alike. East Lothian possesses 19 courses that offer a mix of traditional links and classic inland golf to suit all standards and tastes, none of which are further than 20 minutes’ drive from the house.
Neighboured to the east is Kilspindie Golf Club and Craigielaw Golf Club, while the village of Gullane, home to Muirfield, the British Open Championship course, is just 7 minutes away by car.
The famous Muirfield links, Gullane I, II and III and the private club of Luffness are less than 5 minute’s journey, whilst the magnificent links golf course of Craigielaw and the traditional links course of Kilspindie neighbour the house itself.
