The Lothians region
North Berwick is located on the coast of East Lothian to the east of Edinburgh.
The Scottish Seabird Centre ( www.seabird.org )
This is a unique visitor attraction just a short walk from the house. Learn about the sea birds that live along the coast, and zoom in on some of Bass Rock’s gannets and Fidra’s puffins through remote controlled cameras that you can control from the centre. You can even sometimes, see seals. It is great fun and very child friendly.
Tantallon and Dirleton castles are two of the most impressive castle ruins in Scotland, each with a very different character. Tantallon is perched dramatically on the cliff top with spectacular views out to Bass Rock, whilst Dirleton is set in a pretty conservation village. It has beautiful gardens, with the longest herbaceous border in the country.
There are two beaches in North Berwick to the east and west of the harbour. There are numerous other sandy beaches along the coast at Yellowcraig, Seacliff, Tyninghame and Gullane Bents.
A walk to the top of North Berwick Law provides spectacular views of East Lothian, the Lammermuir Hills, the Firth of Forth and across to Fife. This distinctive drumlin has a clearly marked path and takes half an hour to climb from the car park.
There are many quiet roads to cycle on and bikes can be hired from Law Cycles on the High Street.
There are boat trips available from the harbour to Fidra Island and to the Bass Rock. This is a volcanic rocky crag and one time prison standing guard on southern coast of the Firth of Forth. The Rock is of particular interest to ornithologists as you can see razorbill, gannet, guillemot, shag, kittiwake, puffin and fulmar.
You will find some great links and parkland courses in East Lothian including the world famous championship Muirfield golf course, with North Berwick and Glen golf clubs within walking distance.

"Another great holiday in North Berwick"
We have been coming to 29 Old Abbey Road for the past few years and always enjoy our stay. Its a short walk down to the shops, golf course and beach so the house is ideally situated. North Berwick is a great place to come on holiday with beautiful beach and scenery, fantastic golf course, a variety of small shops cafes and restaurants and indoor and outdoor sports facilities. We come with extended family including young children and teenagers and find the small sitting area at the back of the house perfect for a bit of peace and quiet . The new kitchen this year is a fabulous improvement . I'm sure we'll be back next year.

"A great holiday house in a wonderful location. Highly recommended"
Ideal for a family holiday by the sea, for visiting Edinburgh and the surrounding areas, or for golfing enthusiasts. We found the house to be spacious and clean, great for allergy sufferers, and with good facilities. With the train station around the corner (30 mins to Edinburgh), a short walk from the house into lovely North Berwick, and endless beaches nearby to explore, it is in a really good, convenient location. For children, the putting greens, beaches, nearby leisure centre and skatepark are ideal, and there is lots of games equipment to be found at the house to use. The house was easy to book, with very helpful owners, and friendly touches to make you feel welcome on your arrival. Highly recommended!
