Travel Tips for Musselburgh

Musselburgh - the Honest town.

by planxty

"I have no idea why?"

As you can see from the photo on this page, Musselburgh styles itself "the honest town" although I cannot for the life of me ascertain why. Certainly it doesn't appear to be any more honest or dishonest than anywhere I've ever been.

So, a little history then. People generally think that the Romans never advanced North of Hadrians Wall, but in fact they inhabited this part of Scotland for a while and there is a Roman settlement at nearby Inveresk.

It was created a Burgh (Scots for Borough) in 1315 when it was a fishing town. The name actually derives from the mussel banks at the mouth of the river Esk which runs through the town.

The principal attractions are the golf course which has hosted the Open and is reputed to be the oldest continuously played course in the world, and the Musselburgh racecourse which still has regular meetings.

Situated a mere six miles from the centre of Edinburgh it is now principally a dormitory town, and it was for this purpose we used it. It's about 40 minutes by bus or quicker by train into the centre.

It's a pretty enough little town but I wan't there long enough to make many tips.

Honest Toun(Town) - Musselburgh in Scotland

by Tenten7

"Musselburgh was a Burgh before Edinburgh"

So, the Musselburgh song sings. 'For Musselburgh was a Burgh, When Edinburgh was nane,
And Musselburgh will be a Burgh, When Edinburgh's gane.' --- This town has a history, a beautiful beach, historic icecream(?) and needless to say, wonderful 'Honest' and friendly people. My first visit was summer 1998 and since then, I have kept going back whenever I have a chance.
