Gullane is located on the East Lothian coast approximately 18 miles east of Edinburgh on the A198. On entering Gullane, follow signs to the car park at Gullane Bents. From the Main Street  this is first left when approaching from west on A198. See the maps, or the Undiscovered Scotland website for more detail


This  is free for competitors on the morning of the race. There is enough space for about 350 vehicles if they are parked properly. Please follow the marshals' instructions on arrival.

  • There is a toilet block between the beach and car park.
