New Year's Eve in Musselburgh 2013/2013 - a fame derived from shellfish

The largest settlement in East Lothian, Scotland, with a recorded population of almost 23,000, Musselburgh is located on the coast of the Firth of Forth, only 12 km from the Edinburgh city centre. First settled by the Romans after their invasion of Scotland, the town can be a truly inspired choice for the New Year's Eve in Musselburgh 2012/2013.

Having built a reputation from its citizens' honesty, Musselburgh is also known as 'The Honest Toun', nickname given by the Earl of Mar in the 14th century, in recognition for their devotion to the Regent of Scotland. The two bridges across the River Esk - the Old Bridge or the Roman Bridge, rebuilt on the original Roman foundations in the late 16th century, and the New Bridge or the Rennie Bridge, built in 1806, are among the town's historical attractions for those spending the New Year's Eve in Musselburgh 2012/2013. The beautiful harbour and the delicious mussels will complete a special stay in Scotland's oldest town.
