Persimmon Homes


Known as "Scotland's Mural Town", Prestonpans has a mural trail depicting the town's past, from battles to bar room brawls and miners to minors, men and women executed for witchcraft. The town has a great community, good schools and shops and has a lot to offer. 

Your new home in Prestonpans is just eight miles from Edinburgh and takes just 15 minutes to Edinburgh Waverley. Proximity to the A1 also makes commuting by car across the region, easy. While the once lucrative fishing industry with large catches of herring and oysters has gone, the beautiful location and desirability of the area remain.

Living in Prestonpans

Great sport, leisure and pleasure

East Lothian is famous for its verdant golf courses - the jewel in the crown of Scottish golf is the Royal Musselburgh Golf Club in Prestonpans. If you're looking for football, Preston Athletic can oblige from Pennypit Park. If Rugby Union is more your scrum, head to Preston Lodge RFC. But, if you're more swim 'n' gym, the Meadowmill Sports Centre, is your local well equipped leisure centre and pool. 

Travelling with great connections

The A1 passes just to the south of the town and is the main route into Edinburgh, linking with the City of Edinburgh Bypass, the A720, just outside Musselburgh. Jump on the A1 east and you can enjoy the coastal route all the way down to Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Take the train into Edinburgh Waverley, or jet off from Edinburgh Airport, just 20 miles to the west. 

Shop local

Prestonpans has Fairtrade status, which means the town supports local businesses and far-flung producers in making trade more sustainable. Walk from your new house to browse the independent shops - if you need a supermarket, they're on hand at nearby Tranent. Then enjoy a coffee in one of the many cafes spread out along the High Street which runs parallel to the coast. Alternatively, pick up a bag of fish & chips and enjoy while gazing out to sea.
