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.

"Gilders Green is Excellent"
If you go to North Berwick, we did as a family with to teenaged daughters, please consider to stay at the beatifull, clean and well equipped Gilders green.Gilders green is a quiet cottage near all facillities in North Berwick. It's also a good point to go to Edinburgh.
Thank you very much for your kind review - we are pleased you enjoyed the quiet location of the cottage, yet being very close to all of the amenities.

Stayed for a week in July with my wife and 3 young children. Accommodation was everything we could have hoped for. Really appreciated the welcome pack and the little extras such as washing powder, d… More
Thank you very much for your kind review. We do like to leave some basics for guests arriving - we know how it can be after a long drive with little one's and it's good to have a few basics to get your started! Glad you found everything you needed on the doorstep also and enjoyed the location.

"excellent cottage close to town"
this was everything I hoped for-comfy and well equipped with lots of great touches for a new property-welcome basket,books,games,wi-fi etc with excellent parking and just a few minutes walk to the middle of town with lots of good restaurants and shops
Thank you for taking the time to provide your excellent review. We are very pleased you enjoyed the holiday apartment as much as we do and the parking is certainly a great benefit in North Berwick, especially during the summer when parking can become very difficult in the town!!

"Beautifully appointed cottage"
Very comfortable and beautifully clean cottage in an excellent situation. Pleasant area with good outlook and very easy to walk into the town. So often you need to bring or buy cleaners, dish washer … More
Thank you for your excellent review and also the great tip on letting guests know not to park under the trees! As you note, there are plenty of parking spaces right on the doorstep of the cottage, and avoiding the trees is a great idea to keep your car clean!!! Thanks again for choosing Gilder's Green.

"Avoid younger children but lovely place"
I hate writing this cause this is a nice enough place - not 5 star - but nice - in a lovely part of North Berwick but we must write and be honest - for two young boys of 6 and 9 we felt on edge all th… More
Thank you for your honest review. Around 70% of our guests (almost fully booked in the one year we have been open) have brought kids of 12 and younger and we were not made aware of this being an issue in the past. I am sorry you felt this way. The large lawn does not belong to us but we have a front patio and back garden, to which we are adding a large decked area in May to take advantage of the sea views given there is a bit of a slope. For parking, any space can be used - I will need to ensure the cleaner is aware of this as there is no restriction for all spaces in front of the main lawn. We do have neighbours and we respect them but have had no issues at all with any of them. They have kids of their own and are very understanding about balls landing in their garden, etc. Also I can confirm its not 5 star, it's Visit Scotland 4 star graded property.

"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!
