Musselburgh is the largest settlement in East Lothian, Scotland, on the coast of the Firth of Forth, 6 miles east of Edinburgh city centre. The population of Musselburgh is 21,900.

Musselburgh is situated at the mouth of the River Esk, running alongside the eastern bank in a north east direction. Fisherrow occupies the west bank of the Esk and originated as an irregular line of fishermen's houses along the shore near the harbour. The communities are connected by 7 bridges.

The name, Musselburgh, derives from the extensive mussel beds which lie along its shore on the Firth of Forth. The town dates back to Roman times when they built a fortress on Inveresk Hill. The Coat of Arms for Musselburgh is made up of 3 mussels and 3 anchors. As already mentioned the mussels refer to the origins of the burgh. The anchors refer to the fishing tradition of the community.

Musselburgh Racecourse (the oldest in Scotland) has been a venue for racing since 1816. It was originally known as Edinburgh Races with meetings held on Leith sands, which then moved on to the attractive meadows setting at Musselburgh where it has been ever since. The Racecourse is also home to the historic 9-hole Musselburgh Links which was host to the first Open Golf Championship.   It is also home to Musselburgh Athletic Football Club.

What Our Customers Say About RE/MAX

  • …The level of service I received from both the agent and Ruth in the office, was second to none. I believe the best quality was that of the calm and reassuring matter with which they dealt with everything and also the way they put my mind at ease throughout the whole experience which was a very big step for me…

    Since my move, I have already recommended RE/MAX to a friend whose house had been on the market for a year. She signed a new contract with RE/MAX and sold her house within 3 weeks. I am also in the process of concluding a further sale with RE/MAX due to a family bereavement, and again have received exceptional service from John, the agent, and Ruth in the office.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending RE/MAX to friends and family alike.

  • We sold our house through RE/MAX, Glenrothes in November 2014, and would highly recommend them. Their level of service was excellent, and we found the agent and the office staff very professional and friendly. We trusted them to get a fair price for our property, and we were always kept well informed of progress, including feedback after each viewing. We would not hesitate to use them again in the future.
