My lovely home is in the countryside twenty five minutes from Edinburgh city centre. Ideal as a base for country and city exploration. East Lothian county has beautiful sandy beaches at Gullane, North Berwick, Dirleton (Yellowcraig), and Dunbar. The Lammermuir Hills look over the county, and you can see them from my kitchen. There is also a view of Traprain Law, where there is an ancient iron age settlement.
Parking outside the house is available.
- I would just ask that you tidy up after yourself when using the kitchen, and treat the house with respect, and like you would like your own house to be treated.
- Please talk to me about extra guests before hand.

My name is Jilly, and I am looking forward to meeting lots of lovely guests from all over the country/world. I live just outside Edinburgh, in East Lothian's lovely countryside.
I am easy going, friendly and approachable and love to meet people from all over the world. I am a trained florist and also as a colour therapist. However, I am presently loving my work as a seasonal tourist advisor for VisitScotland in Edinburgh. It seems like the ideal job for me, as it encompasses all my loves - Scottish history, geography, travel, meeting people, customer services and retail work. Plus I get to practice my French and Italian.
I have a good knowledge of the local area and Scotland in general, so quite happy to help you plan your trip if you need advice. Am equally happy with guests who want to be sociable or others who would rather have their own company. Flexible!
I love travel and have explored many countries. I have five grown up kids, and two grand children so far....
I love to cook, learn about Scottish history, visit new places, design, love movies, horse riding, skiing, walking, parties, going out on the town, shopping, travelling, researching family trees, and the company of friends and family. I have a wheaten terrier, called Milly. She sometimes stays at the house or with my mother nearby.
I can get by in French and Italian, probably understanding more than I can actually speak it!
The places I have on my list to visit soon are Australia again, Fiji, Tuscany again to do a painting course, Denmark for the hygge! and feel the urge to do another island hopping trip out to the Western Hebrides again. I love it out there, just stunning!
I look forward to welcoming you to my home!
