formerly The Watchman Hotel

Gullane, East Lothian

A delightful and relaxed hotel in the heart of Gullane.

The Mallard has 18 newly upgraded bedrooms, a cosy, inviting and dog-friendly bar and lounge,

and a beautiful enclosed garden.

The Mallard is also home to our new restaurant, "the little duckling".

Whether you have been golfing on one of the many local golf courses, enjoying the beautiful sandy beach, walking the John Muir Way or are simply wanting to get away from it all, The Mallard will welcome you.

We always have gift vouchers and special offers available if you are looking for that perfect gift for a friend (or even just to treat yourself!).

We are lucky enough to overlook four of Scotland’s best golf courses and there’s a fifth within walking distance.

The picturesque village of Gullane boasts an award-winning unspoilt sandy beach popular with families, dog walkers, swimmers and kite surfers. If you’re very lucky you might even see a dolphin!

New Year, New Look,
Classic Name!
