Archerfield is a magnificent estate situated between Muirfield and North Berwick in picturesque East Lothian, Scotland’s Golf Coast. With Grade I listed Archerfield House lying at its heart, the land affords magnificent views of Fidra Island and the Fife coastline beyond. With its distinctive lighthouse and whitewashed stonework, it comes as little surprise that Fidra was the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous book, Treasure Island.
