Your Quarterly, County Magazine…

It was in winter 1989 when I realised my dream of launching a county magazine and the very first issue of East Lothian Life was published. Here we are 32 years later and issue 115 has just been published. I can't quite believe how East Lothian Life has grown and developed over the years, yet at the same time retaining the very essence of the county it represents. Its people, its history, its towns, villages and its future, in a magazine packed with a stimulating choice of diverse articles. The close dialogue I have enjoyed with the readers is very much reflected in the content of the magazine.

I have learned so much and experienced first-hand the beauty of this county in which I was lucky enough to be born. I have been intrigued by its fascinating history, its diverse countryside and spectacular coastline. I have met so many inspirational people and made so many new friends who have taken the time to share with me their knowledge of a county which they too love.

It's time for me now to pass East Lothian Life into the capable hands of Kim Williams, who will be known to many of you as the editor of Local Life. She and her family chose to live in East Lothian over 18 years ago and, like you and me, Kim loves East Lothian and all it has to offer.

I could not have published East Lothian Life without the help and support of so many people. I would like to thank everyone who has made East Lothian Life such a joy for me to work on − the contributors, the advertisers, the retailers and you the reader. Thank you all very much.

I know you will support Kim and I hope she will derive as much pleasure as I have done, in having the opportunity to reflect the essential character of this wonderful county and its people within the pages of East Lothian Life.


East Lothian Life captures the very essence of this beautiful county, its people, its history, its towns, villages and its future, in a magazine packed with a stimulating choice of diverse articles and features covering many aspects of life in East Lothian, past and present.

Well-researched and beautifully written, East Lothian Life is an outstanding example of a county magazine with a truly profound understanding of the county it represents. Each quarterly issue provides new insights and knowledge and keeps you up to date with what is going on in the area.

It's an ideal gift so why not treat yourself, a family member or a friend to a year of discovery?
