Welcome to Gifford, a picture postcard conservation village, four miles south of Haddington in East Lothian, Scotland.
The pretty church, (which is open to visitors between Easter and October), impressive Village Hall, lovely village green and the 18th century Mercat Cross, make Gifford a delightful spot to discover.

"Gifford - A Brief History and Guide", is available from:

About Gifford

 

Yester House

Gifford, in the Parish of Yester is first mentioned in the
Anglo-Saxon period.

In the 17th century a large estate and farming community flourished after the first Marquess of Tweeddale had enclosed the Yester Estate with a 7 mile wall and laid out a park within it.

He demolished the old settlement of Bothans which lay near his house, and the village grew outside the gates to accommodate estate workers.

The name Gifford derives from a Norman family.
