The Lothians region
East Lothian is reputedly one of the driest, sunniest regions of Scotland and with over 40 miles of magnificent coastline, golden beaches, the world's finest selection of links golf courses and of course many award winning tourist attractions it's an ideal location for family, golfing, walking and cycling holidays.
Located just 30 minutes East of Edinburgh, the historic capital city of Scotland, East Lothian provides easy access by air, rail and road.
North Berwick continues to attract thousands of visitors year after year due to its climate, beaches, golf courses and many tourist attractions. Below you will find information on what North Berwick and the surrounding area has to offer:
Scottish Seabird Centre
Within walking distance of the apartment, the five star, award-winning Scottish Seabird Centre has something for the whole family, whatever the weather, with a Discovery Centre, gift shop, café and seasonal boat trips.
Museum of Flight
Located around 8.5kms from North Berwick - another five star attraction for the whole family to enjoy.
Myreton Motor Museum
The museum has a large collection of cars, bicycles, motor cycles and commercial vehicles dating from 1899. There is also a large collection of period advertising, posters, enamel signs, and toy vehicles.
Belhaven Brewery Visitors Centre
Located approximately 1.5km west of the centre of Dunbar in East Lothian the Belhaven Brewery was founded in 1719 and remains the oldest surviving independent brewery in Scotland and one of the oldest in Britain. It is likely that brewing was originally carried out by Benedictine Monks on the land around 'Bele' (now Belhaven) granted to them by King David I (c. 1080 - 1153).
Scotland's only lowland malt whisky distillery is at Pencaitland.
East Links Family Park
Located 20kms from North Berwick in Dunbar, the park is a great day out for the whole family with a host of indoor and outdoor activities including trampolines, soft play, climbing walls, go-karting, small animal handling and feeding and play parks.
During the summer months, boat trips depart from North Berwick Harbour to the world famous Bass Rock, Craigleith and to Fidra.
Walking and cycling
There are numerous routes, in particular The John Muir Way - a 45 mile continuous coastal walking path linking East Lothian with the City of Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders. Bicycles can be hired at Law Cycles in North Berwick.
East Lothian is one of the best regions in Scotland for golf, with over 20 courses all within easy reach of the apartment, offering traditional links and classic inland courses. Some of the world's oldest and most admired courses can be found here including:
Muirfield - The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers
Host to the British Open Golf Championship in 2002 and again to play host in 2013, this course is widely acclaimed to be the best golf course in the UK and the world's oldest golf club.
Three exceptional golf courses on and around Gullane Hill, with marvellous views across the Firth of Forth and the East Lothian countryside.
A challenging course with stunning greens located on the Western edge of Gullane.
Archerfield Golf Links
Two fairly new golf courses in the Archerfield Estate. Fidra lies between the 8th hole at Muirfield and the 9th hole at North Berwick, and although only opened for play in 2004 the Fidra blends very well into the group of premium golfing destinations in this corner of East Lothian. Dirleton also offers a first class golfing experience and the estate also houses an enormous clubhouse constructed in a colonial style.
North Berwick West
Within walking distance of the apartment, the West course at North Berwick, which was founded in 1832 is famous across the world as a traditional links course with stunning sea views across to Craigleith Island and the Bass Rock.
North Berwick East (The Glen)
Again within walking distance, this course also affords the golfer magnificent views across the Firth of Forth.
Another old course formed in 1867 and very proud of its heritage, it lies on the west side of Aberlady Bay, with many holes running along the shoreline affording magnificant views.
A very new golf course boasting an ultra-modern clubhouse with panoramic views across the water to the Fife coast.
Historical Castles and Sites:
Located 5kms East of North Berwick - a stunning location - set atop a high cliff edge overlooking the Firth of Forth and the Bass Rock.
3.2kms West of North Berwick you will find Dirleton Castle, with the oldest parts of the castle dating back to the 13th century.
Set in a wooded hollow one mile south of the picturesque market town of Haddington, with breathtaking views over the Lammermuir Hills you will find this historic house which has stood for over 700 years.
North Berwick and the surrounding area has an abundance of activities and attractions to keep the family busy, however the historical capital city of Edinburgh is also only 30 minutes away by train or car where you can visit the famous Pandas at the zoo, Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, Arthur's Seat, Royal Yacht Britannia, The National Museum of Scotland and the Scottish National Gallery to name but a few of the attractions on offer in the Capital.

"Fantastic! Great Holiday Home!"
Excellent accommodation will definitely return soon, very clean and everything you could possibly need...especially liked the additional touch of a welcome basket with some biscuits, water and a bottle of wine! Perfect location, only a ten minute walk into the town centre where.
Thank you for your excellent comments - we should have told you about the park 2 minutes walk from the property as that makes a good short cut to the town so you get there in 6 minutes rather than 10!!! Glad you are planning to come back soon!

"Best holiday let we have stayed in."
This accommodation is first class. It was absolutely immaculate, so cosy and it has everything you could possibly need inside. We were there just before Christmas so the town itself had a lovely feel … More
Thank you for your kind comments and very pleased that you have already enquired about availability later this year! You will be most welcome back and returning guests receive a 10% discount.

"Well equipped and cosy cottage in a great location."
The booking was straightforward and communication was good. The property was spotless and well equipped. It was ideally located for exploring North Berwick and the wider East Lothian and was only a short walk to the train station, making Edinburgh city centre only 30 minutes away. The beaches and park in the town are great for children and there is a wide selection of shops and restaurants all within walking distance.
Thank you for your excellent review. Having a little one of our own, we like to ensure the property is well equipped for kids and it's great to be within a few minutes walk of the Lodge Grounds with the wonderful park for children to enjoy - we have spent many an hour there with our 1 year old!

"Excellent holiday home with a real holiday feel, clean with all mod cons"
I booked Gilders Green last minute and the property did not let me down. I was traveling alone while having friends stay over night at different intervals. I felt at home straight away and also felt very comfortable and safe in the property alone. Gilders Green really was home away from home with games and lots of DVDs for those rainy days.. The property is close to the train station and to North Berwicks High Street. I would recommend anyone to stay at Gilders Greens. I am already planning to stay again later on this year. Excellent customer service from the Property owners to ensure a comfortable stay.
It's a gem off a find and I miss it already....
Thank you for your excellent comments - we are so glad you were able to relax and feel at home - it is a very quiet location yet like you say, close to the town and station so ideal for those who want convenience but at the end of the day a nice quiet home to relax in! We will be very pleased to welcome you back anytime and as a returning guest, we would like to offer you a 10% discount from your future stay.

"Lovely cottage in excellent location"
Lovely cottage set in quiet grounds. The cottage was well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Other benefits include WiFi access. It is well placed and only a short walk from North Berwick train station, the high street and the beach. It is also a good base for exploring the Lothian area and it would be easy to get into Edinburgh for a day trip if you wanted. I would happily stay here again.
Thank you for your very kind review - we are pleased you found everything you needed in the cottage - we tend to add more and more every time we visit! We hope to welcome you back again and as a previous guest you can enjoy a 10% discount!
