Out of many castles in East Lothian, this is by far my favourite. It's location is off the beaten track, single track road, about 1.5 miles south west of East Linton but so worth it when you get there. It's a ruin and the best part is that it is free. Very tranquil with beautifully kept grounds and well maintained. Great for children although behind the castle lies the River Tyne so need to be careful if they are running free. Interesting history and as we picnic here often, I find Hailes Castle is a very easy setting to imagine how times were here in the 13th-16th centuries and so quiet, you could hear a pin drop! Please do pay this one a visit, well worth it.
