About the tour

Originally called Yester the village grew up around Yester Castle built in 1267. The village moved to a new location with a new name, Gifford. It is a picture postcard East Lothian gem with an interesting history. Hear about the Goblin Ha’ and what links this tiny village to the American Declaration of Independence. Highlights include the Mercat Cross, Town Hall and Yester Church.
