East Lothian Life – your quarterly, county magazine

Celebrating 24 years of publishing, the blend of genuinely interesting and relevant editorial, coupled with a strong heritage, keeps the readers of East Lothian Life in touch with their grass routes and provides a fascinating reference to the area.

Published quarterly, East Lothian Life is a quality magazine for people who appreciate and are interested in their county. With a diverse group of discerning readers, East Lothian Life is a magazine for people who expect the best and are interested in fine food, good music, entertainment, history, people, geography and so much more. It is a great introduction for new residents, visitors and regular readers to be kept informed – combing and presenting a unique, readable record, which can be referred to time and time again. It is fast becoming a collectors’ item, as the articles very rarely date and can be constantly referred to.
