Oxenfoord International is now enjoying its ninth year at Loretto School, a distinguished Scottish boarding school set in 85 acres of leafy campus in Musselburgh, just on the eastern outskirts of Edinburgh and ideally placed to explore Scotland’s historic capital.
Musselburgh is an accessible, attractive town which has retained a racecourse, harbour, and spectacular views across the River Forth towards Edinburgh. At low tide the water retreats nearly a mile to expose a sandy beach with scattered shingle…leaving lots to explore between classes. There are also plenty of shops, banks and cafes on Musselburgh High Street within easy walking distance of Loretto School. Try the Toll Booth for breakfast, Dal Patino for fine Italian cuisine or S. Luca for its famous ice cream.
