East Fortune

A former Royal Air Force (RAF) airfield can be found in East Fortune, an expanse of land which has been converted into an outstanding Museum of Flight and doubles up as a popular Sunday Market.

The Museum of Flight
The Museum of Flight in East Fortune.
A Festival of Flight is held there every July, with flights by a range of aircraft old and new and re-enactments of World War II air battles. There are often guest appearances by the Red Arrows of The Royal Air Force.

The airfield is not the only early 20th century history connected with East Fortune - East Fortune Hospital (no longer in use) was where Edinburgh Tubercerlosis sufferers were relocated to in oder to isolate them earlier this century.

The Museum of Flight is complimented by another visitor centre heralding a twentieth century invention: Myretown Motor Museum is close by at Fenton Barns, where a retail leisure complex is also located.

Bodyguarding had never made it to Manchester PI Kate Brannigan's wish list. But somebody's got to pay the bills at Brannigan & Co, and if the only earner on offer is playing nursemaid to a paranoid soap star, she has to swallow her pride and slip into something more glam than her Thai boxing kit.
