About this location
The East Lothian region
Edinburgh and the Lothians combines the culture and bustle of the city of Edinburgh with the peace and tranquility of the countryside. North Berwick is a classic sea side town with a busy little harbour, fantastic range of shops and restaurants and two amazing sandy beaches. Yet, from the quaint railway station, the twice an hour train takes just 30 minutes to place the tourist in the centre of one of Europe's most vibrant capital cities.
From the atmospheric cobbled streets of the Old Town to the beautiful Georgian avenues of the New Town, Edinburgh is a city of contrasts blending shopping, historic attractions, gardens and plenty of restaurants and cafes where you can relax. By contrast, the Lothians offer historic properties and wonderful wildlife to world-class golf and exciting outdoor activities, there is so much to discover in the Lothians. Explore evocative ruins, spot distinctive species and play a round on an Open Championship course.
North Berwick is an ideal base to discover the historic towns of East Lothian such as Dunbar, the birthplace of John Muir, Haddington, a small market town. Take a trip to Athelstaneford where the original Scottish Saltire flag is said to have been first adopted. Alternatively visit the theatre in Edinburgh, or take advantage of the Fringe in Edinburgh or the alternative "Fringe by the sea" in North Berwick.
Admire the amazing architecture and grandeur of stately homes and castles such as Lennoxlove House and Dirleton Castle. A great way to explore East Lothian's magnificent historical attractions is by bike. Take your own or hire bikes once you arrive and follow extensive cycle routes through the area for an exhilarating tour. Or, for a more leisurely pace, follow the John Muir Way from Musselburgh to Dunbar to relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.
Have a wild day out with the whole family at the award-winning Scottish Seabird Centre where you can discover around 150,000 gannets nesting on the spectacular Bass Rock. Watch from the warmth of the centre's state-of-the-art Discovery Centre, observe live footage from cameras at the nesting areas, or take a thrilling boat ride out to the huge granite Bass Rock, described by Sir David Attenborough as 'one of the 12 Wildlife Wonders of the World'.
Spend a day at one of the beautiful beaches such as hidden gem Seacliff, pristine Yellowcraig and kite surfing paradise Gullane. Or enjoy a few rounds of golf on the region's fantastic collection of links courses that rank among the best in the world. Play on the famous Muirfield green where 15 Open Championships have been played and be sure to visit historic North Berwick Golf Club, established in 1832.
