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.

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.
