The East Lothian region
East Lothian is the sunniest and the driest area of Scotland, and the mild climate in this sheltered corner of the country makes it a popular year-round holiday destination.
The coastline is punctuated with places of interest, including castles at Tantallon and Dirleton dating back to the 13th century. The area's many other attractions include beaches, historic homes and ancient monuments, good walking and cycling routes, and the best collection of golf courses to be found anywhere.
It's worth taking a day's drive through the East Lothian countryside. There are many places of interest and the county's interior is dotted with delightful villages where you can stop for refreshment at the many pubs and coffee shops.
The Bass Rock, 2 km offshore, is home to one of the world's largest gannet colonies and dominates the sea view from North Berwick, whilst Aberlady Bay (the UK's first local nature reserve) hosts thousands of migrating birds each autumn.
Edinburgh is just half an hour away by train. Scotland's capital city offers many attractions including the Castle, Holyrood palace, the quite unique Scottish Parliament building and Brittania (to name just a few !). The city is at it's busiest for three weeks every August during the Edinburgh International Festival.
North Berwick is a thriving coastal town with a long and colourful history. The growth of the 'Royal Burgh' is closely linked to the establishment of the railway line in the late 19th century, a time when North Berwick was a fashionable destination for the well to do in society, and became known as the 'Biarritz of the north'.
These days the town is home to a population of around 7,000 and is one of six main towns in East Lothian. Local infrastructure includes a high school, sports centre and swimming pool, health centre, shops, banks, pubs, restaurants, etc. There are golf, rugby, sailing and tennis clubs, and many other tourist attractions. Excellent transport links mean Edinburgh is easily accessible by road or rail.
Local attractions include Tantallon and Dirleton Castles, the Museum of Flight, Glenkinchie Disitillery, and the Scottish Seabird Centre. Boat trips to the Bass Rock and other islands are available from the old harbour in summer months.
At the heart of Edinburgh's golf coast, North Berwick is home to the West Links, the oldest piece of golfing land outside St Andrews and one of the finest courses to be found anywhere. Muirfield, Gullane, Dunbar, and the new courses at Archerfield and Renaissance are all just a short drive away.
For those who simply want to relax and unwind, there are miles of beautiful sandy beaches, good places to walk or cycle, and friendly pubs and restaurants.
Upcoming local events include:
- North Berwick Sevens Tournament (April)
- US Kids Golf European Championships, Gullane (27th-29th May 2014)
- East Lothian Yacht Club Open Regatta
- East Lothian Open Tennis Tournament, North Berwick (20th-27th July 2014)
- North Berwick Highland Games (2nd Aug 2014)
- The Fringe by the Sea (4th-10th Aug 2014)
- The Loony Dook (1st Jan 2015) - watch 100's of crazy people get cold and wet in the sea !

Arrived on Thursday and stayed until Monday. It was my wife's birthday on Saturday and our wedding anniversary on the Sunday, so this was a special occasion for us. With us was my wife's sis… More
Thanks for your comments and I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to North Berwick. I do hope to see you again.
The heating problem was unfortunate - all working well when you arrived on Thursday but unfortunately the boiler failed on Friday morning. As with all issues that arise I do my best to resolve them swiftly, and in this instance Saturday lunchtime was the earliest I could get an engineer on site. The part was replaced and the problem fixed, so the central heating system is now working well and quite sufficient for the flat. That said I do appreciate Friday was a chilly night and less than ideal with just the living flame fire in the living room and a halogen heater in the hall - how did we manage before central heating !! - so my apologies for that.
As detailed in our listing, the flat is in fact just one flight up from street level.

Our stay in North Berwick was pure magic! Our family of six enjoyed this flat for two weeks. Between day trips to Edinburgh and the Highlands, adventures on the nearby beach, at the Law, at the Seabi… More

"Exceeded expectations - would definitely come back."
I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the apartment as it was more spacious than the photos actually showed on tripadvisor. The apartment was very comfortable, cozy and very homely. It had all bed linen and towels provided and the washing machine proved handy as we needed to wash these towels for the middle part of the week ready for my wife's family for when they came through.
Everyone of our families commented on how perfect the apartment is; the beach is 50 yards away; situated on the main shopping street; well equipped; beds were comfortable to sleep on; good space of living and it was totally suitable for our needs in every way.
I have noticed on past reviews that the church clock had disturbed past visitors sleep but I can't say it ever disturbed mine and I'm not a heavy sleeper!
In my opinion as well this apartment can definitely cater for up to 7 people plus baby. On Thursday night my Uncle and Aunty decided to join us for one night and at this point we had 6 adults, a 2 year old and our 1 year old daughter; with ease it accommodated us all.
A special mention of Torquil as well who is an exceptional manager of the apartment and is very friendly, personable and helpful.
Family have already discussed about coming back in the near future so I think that's goes to show how much they appreciated North Berwick and the apartment.

"North Berwick- delightful flat in great location."
We found this flat to be just as advertised, great accommodation, excellent location and well appointed. The owner Torquil was easy to deal with and communicated with us on the day of arrival a number… More

"Very convenient for town and beach"
A nice flat, well equipped, plenty of room for three adults and three kids. Good sized and equipped kitchen. The living room is also the dining room so you do need to be tidy. A hop skip and a jump … More

"Very Clean , a Haven in the Hustle and Bustle"
We loved our stay, the flat was very clean, the only thing was that the controller for the Wii was missing and the radio didnt work and it would have been nice to have a cd player as there wasnt one. The tv in the bunk bedroom doesnt work as a tv , only to watch dvds on,
The living room was a bit cramped as they had put the dining table and chairs in there beside livingroom furniture,
I would suggest using this room as a dining room as it is next door to the kitchen (which isnt big enough to sit in).
I would suggest the large front bedroom with the cot in it should be an ideal living room, this would leave two good sized bedrooms to let for four people .
In my opinion this flat is too small for more than four people to rent . At the moment this flat can sleep seven people plus a baby - well good luck in trying to fit them all into the tiny current livingroom , maybe some of them could sit at the dining table which takes up half the living room !!
I feel that seven is far too many people for the size of the accommodation, but the flat is ideal for up to four persons and a baby if you take my suggestion of turning livingroom in to a dining room and making livingroom in the main bedroom .
The bedrooms were very comfortable but the window rope is broken in the bunk bedroom which made it dangerous to open the window.
Also, we had hot water from taps and for the bath but strangely it wasnt hot enough from the shower.
The flat is nicely decorated and has a well stocked kitchen , it is seconds from the beach and the shops but would probably benefit from double or secondary glazing due to the church bells that chime every hour and half hour and general traffic / pedestrian noise .
Would like to return after these modifications are made and would recommend to all,
Up a first floor on a stair in tenement so not suitable for elderly or wheelchair users.

"2 sec walk from beach and amenities. fantastic!"
Great apartment that slept up to 7 from a hen party! So close to the beach pubs and restaurants it's literally on your doorstep. Torquil was excellent and all 3 aparments and provided me with info on best takeaways and restaurants. Looking forward to returning to locke north Berwick and torquils apartments soon

"A lovely holiday home from home!"
Royal Apartment, 1A Market Place was a lovely flat in the centre of North Berwick. The décor and feel of the place made us feel at home straight away. It is very well-equipped and very comfortable. We got a surprise when the Bells chimed every hour and half hour but we got used to it. It's in perfect location; just 2 minutes from the beach and the High Street with many shops and cafes on the doorstep. Steampunk is a new café, which serves amazing coffee and cakes, and well worth a try. The deli, which has a little café in the back serves lovely, fresh food. We were worried that there may not be parking but there is a free car park right across the road and another one just 3 minutes away. I would definitely recommend this and would be delighted to go back there.
