Student Shopping Guide to Musselburgh

By BzSarah 12 Sep 2014

Good news! Whether you want to stock up on a weekly food shop or treat yourself to something, you are just a stone's throw away from local supermarkets and high street shops.....

Food Shopping

There is an Aldi, Lidl and Iceland approximately 10 minutes' walk from campus (towards the harbour), and a local newsagent and off licence five minutes' walk away towards Musselburgh high street.

You can find Tesco in Musselburgh and a 24 hour Asda just past the Fort - a two minute walk over the railway bridge.

Musselburgh is a mini town, a 15 minute walk from campus with; charity shops, butchers, fishmonger, banks, clothes shops, a DIY shop, pound shops etc. 

Retail Therapy

The Fort Kinnaird can be reached by a 15 minute bus ride or 15 minute walk down the cycle route path.

It contains places to eat such as Subway, Costa, Starbucks, McDonalds, and almost all of the major high chain shops e.g. Borders, Boots, M&S, Next, H&M, New Look and lots more.
