Just a short drive away from Edinburgh city centre, Tyninghame beach is a long stretch of isolated golden sands mirrored only by the vast darkness of the North Sea. Situated off the East Lothian Coast the beach is a stunning example of the natural Scottish coast line and is a regular haunt for city dwellers looking to escape to the ocean. However hidden along this coastline is an unexpected taste of Canada. Backed onto the beach is Tyninghame estate, which has been owned and managed by the Earls of Haddington since 1656. During the 1960's the 12th Earl of Haddington's wife the Lady Haddington missed her native Canada, so the Earl commissioned the construction of a traditional Canadian style beach log cabin. The cabin is perfectly positioned amongst the pine trees emulating the iconic Canadian landscape, with large glass windows that look out towards the ocean. The cabin was used as a place to admire the beauty of the windswept Scottish coastline.
