The East Lothian region

East Lothian is reputedly the driest, sunniest part of the U.K. and the many sandy beaches and rocky coves provide a wonderful natural playground for children and adults alike. Little wonder that visitors are attracted to this charming, coastal holiday resort with its pleasant situation and scenery, yet just half an hour by car or train from Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh.

North Berwick itself offers a good variety of shops, bistros, coffee bars & restaurants. There are many interesting walks around the town, including North Berwick Law, a small hill, 612ft. high, with magnificent views over East Lothian, the Firth of Forth, Fife and beyond.

North Berwick

Muirfield - The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers

Host to the Open Golf Championship as recently as 2002, widely acclaimed to be the best golf course in the UK.


Three fine golf courses on and around Gullane Hill, with marvellous views to all the points of the compass, across the Firth of Forth and the East Lothian countryside.


A fine course which completes the complement of four on and around Gullane Hill and brings one close to the Aberlady Bay Nature Reserve.

Archerfield Golf Links

Two new golf courses in the Archerfield Estate which form part of a very prestigious development.

North Berwick West

The West course at North Berwick is famous across the world as a traditional links course by the sea - some its holes have been copied in many other parts of the world.

North Berwick East (The Glen)

A short climb to the first green reveals unbelievable views of the rugged coastline, with every hole affording the golfer a different perspective over the Firth of Forth.


A delightful little course on the west side of Aberlady Bay, with fine views towards Gullane Hill.


A very new golf course which has already been acclaimed by golfers as a fine test alongside Kilspindie. Golf in East Lothian has more details on the local golf amenities.

Nearby attractions and facilities

Scottish Seabird Centre

The Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick is an award winning wildlife visitor centre and one of Scotland's five star attractions. From its stunning location overlooking the sea and islands of the Forth, visitors enjoy a close encounter with nature to remember.

Museum of Flight

Man's fascination with flight comes to life at this protected First and Second World War airfield. A site steeped in history, in 1919 the R34 Airship took off from East Fortune on its record-breaking first east-west transatlantic flight. Here you will discover some of the most extraordinary machines in the world that reveal the story of our ambition to take to the skies and find out how flight has changed our world.

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.

John Muir's Birthplace

John Muir's life and work has inspired people all over the world. Now the Dunbar birthplace of the pioneering conservationist has been transformed into a new visitor attraction. The stunning interpretative centre highlights the work and achievements of this remarkable man.

Preston Mill

There has been a mill on this site since the 16th century, and the present stone buildings date from the 18th century. The conical roofed kiln and attractive red pantiled buildings make Preston Mill a popular haunt for photographers and artists, while the nearby millpond with resident ducks geese provides the finishing touches to an idyllic countryside spot East Links Family Park - just to the west of Dunbar, full of fascinating attractions for all the family.

Lennoxlove House

Set among East Lothian woodlands a mile south of Haddington with a fine outlook to the Lammermuir Hills, is a house with a threefold interest - its historic architecture, the association of successive owners with the Royal Stewarts and its contents, especially it's paintings. The earliest parts of the House were built well before 1400.

Tantallon Castle

Two miles east of North Berwick is a rocky headland surrounded by cliffs offering stunning views north to the sea-bird colony on Bass Rock. Anywhere else, Bass Rock would dominate the attention, but here it takes second place to the remarkable curtain wall of Tantallon Castle.

Dirleton Castle

The village of Dirleton lies two miles west of North Berwick. Set within it and contained by an estate wall is a magnificent garden which the Guinness Book of Records certifies as home to the world's longest herbaceous border.

Belhaven Brewery Visitors Centre

Located approximately 1 mile (1½ km) 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).

Glenkinchie Distillery

Scotland's only lowland malt whisky distillery is at Pencaitland, approx 12 mile from West Fenton.

Aberlady Bay Nature Reserve

Half a mile east of Aberlady a small car park on a bend in the A198 gives access to the Aberlady Bay Local Nature Reserve. This became Britain's first Local Nature Reserve in 1952 and is looked after by East Lothian Council. The total area of the reserve is 582 hectares or 1,439 acres, though two thirds of this is sand, mudflats and salt marsh falling below the high tide mark.

Boat trips

To the Bass Rock and the May Island. In summer, a boat trip from the harbour at North Berwick or Dunbar is a real chance to get really close to a vast number of seabirds.

We absolutely loved Aaran Haven. It is so luxurious and was in a perfect location for the high street and the beach. We went with our one and a half year old son and the only thing lacking was a stair gate however we knew that before we left. On the plus side he has now learned how to descend backwards! We had a lovely relaxing time and loved all the little extras like the wine, whisky and chocolates. We had a different take away every night as we were only there for the weekend and it's so close to the high street. We definitely hope to return next year.
